Winter is all about excitement. The cold winds, styling layers of warm clothes, and lying under the covers is all we crave for. Don’t you think winter is the season of laziness? And yes, there are high chances of weight gain, as you do less exercise, sleep more, and eat more. As days are shorter in winter, we urge for comfort food as we coincide with our energy level. We opt for the easy options and take away as we are not ready to cook.
