Why the thermostat is making you fat

I’m always cold in restaurants and movie theatres. But little did I know the thermostat ismy eating enemy and restaurants are using it to thwart our weightloss efforts and make us order extra apps.

According to David Ludwig, professor of pediatrics at Harvard, people eat more when they’re colder.

“Your metabolism drops when it's time to eat, and eating warms you up," Ludwig explains. "Heat is a satiety signal."

So next time you’re headed out to eat, grab a sweater or two to defend against those wily restaurants.
