How Can I Avoid Winter Weight Gain?  Every summer I lose 10 to 15 pounds.  The hot weather seems to kill my appetite and the sunny days keep me in a good mood.  But now that fall is here, I’m worried—all my weight always comes back as it gets colder.  What can I do to stay slim?

You can easily replicate summer’s slimming effects by supplementing with 5-HTP, an amino acid that the body converts into serotonin.  And serotonin (which tends to wane in the winter since sunlight plays a role in its production) has been proven to dramatically curb cravings and improve mood.  To get the benefits, take 50 mg of 5-HTP (such as Carlson 5-HTP Elite 50 mg, at twice daily.  If cravings persist after two weeks or get stronger as the days get shorter, consider increasing your dose to four tablets daily.
