WOMEN GET blues dur­ing win­ter and eat more as dark evenings and chilly tem­per­a­tures pre­vent them from ven­tur­ing out­side, a sur­vey has re­vealed

TWICE AS many women (28%) as men (15%) ad­mit­ted seek­ing so­lace in stodgy meals and carb-heavy snacks since the clocks went back in Oc­to­ber.

77% WOMEN, as against 64% men say the re­duc­tion in day­light neg­a­tively af­fects their eat­ing habits

37% WOMEN claimed shorter days were more likely to keep them in­side, com­pared to 28% men, the sur­vey by Anglian Home Im­prove­ments found

WHY: LACK of day­light is be­lieved to dis­turb brain’s chem­i­cal bal­ance, caus­ing se­cre­tion of too much me­la­tonin - the hor­mone that makes us feel tired and ready for sleep, the study claimed

SO: SOAK your­self in enough day­light, be happy, and eat healthy
