What is the best month to plan? Researchers at the University of Exeter in the UK suggest that dieting in January n is not effective to lose the weight stored for the holidays. It is preferable to wait until April. The reason: during the winter months, our body needs that extra fat layer. We are actually programmed to store food during the toughest times. Therefore, according to the scheme of evolution, we eat more in winter than in spring or summer, just like animals. “ In April or May, unconscious fear of losing weight sent to our body fades, allowing to lose weight more easily ” suggests Andrew Higginson, the author of the study published in the Royal Society Journal . ”

One would expect that the evolution has allowed us to know when will that we had eaten enough, but instead it shown little control face to processed foods “, also explains the scientist.
