“Doughnut lovers love me for saying this,” says cold-weather expert Murray Hamlet, DVM, formerly of the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine in Natick, Massachusetts. “You need more calories in winter. You need to eat more fatty, slow-burning foods. I eat greasy in the morning–doughnuts work–[then]carbohydrates in the afternoon, and greasy again at night.”
