Hibernation fat. I definitely tend to eat more in the winter. I think this has something to do with the cold weather, of course--whereas I tend to load up on liquids in the summer, warm foods are comforting to me during the winter. And I'm just generally hungrier, though this may have much to do with the holiday celebrations. :)
I probably get more calories in winter. I don't think I eat more but the foods are different. I cook heavier meals in the winter because they're more time intensive and with it getting so dark so early I'm inside more. Plus I don't have to worry about the oven competing with the a/c.
In the summer we grill a lot, and eat tons of fresh fruits and veggies.
