During the summer, I work very hard to not cook. Smoothies, light sandwiches, and salads work very well.
I do a lot of fruit and vegetable smoothies and drinks or I do salads with things like beans for protein. I find during the warmer months I am not a big protein eater. I think it is because it is harder to digest. I use to never sleep well during the summer now that I have gotten older a nice nap during the heat of the day is so enjoyable.
I am like CELTIC_WITCH I figure my body knows what if wants.

I eat much lighter during the summer months. I live on salad and frozen fruit. On the days that it cools down I cook something and enjoy the change.
I also want to sleep a lot, which I give into when I can. I figure my body know what it wants.

As opposed to the winter where I seem to ALWAYS want to eat, especially those "COMFORT" foods, I too have trouble eating when it is really hot.
Lately though I've been using my "Ninja" blender and mixing up cold drinks that include lots of fruits & vegetables. Add ice and it makes a cool drink that helps beat the heat too. Since I tend to run low on proteins I've started using whey protein powder to help balance the nutrition. Some days I'm a little low on carbs but this helps me tremendously.
I hope this helps you just a little. Stay cool!

The system has to work hard to digest and use those calories, and this creates heat. Body says "who needs it?"
it is perfectly appropriate to eat less during the summer months, and eat "lighter". Acid reflux is often caused by eating carbs and sugar at night.
I'm the same way. Except, if it's hot, I CAN'T sleep - I have terrible acid reflux and end up throwing up half the night. And the thought of food? Ick! This year, I can add horrible allergies on top of it. So, so not fun!

Fitness isn't about looks or being thin. And you certainly can't tell how fit a person is by looking at them.

Why is it that every time it gets hot and sticky i can't eat???? If i can eat it's not much. Why is it that all i can do is sleep???? Why is it i can barely function??? It's almost like having the flue but not for weekds on end. It's terrible. Why is this happening to me????
