Plus, for some reason, I just have more energy in the winter than summer, heat seems to zap all my energy.
Also, a lot of folks cook BIG quantities on weekends when they are off work to reheat & eat all week - since it is an average maybe that accounts for some of it too? (trying to help us not look so lazy here...)
