How does the heat during summer season effect your workouts and diets (if)?
Just curious

I have a hard time eating enough and keeping my appetite up.

I agree with you swede, I find it very difficult to get enough calories in the summer time. i do some work outside in the heat and those days just ruin my calorie intake.

I try to combat this by eating a lot at night time once I am cooled down and then my hunger usually hits me. My workouts do not change much since my gym is air conditioned and pretty cold for the older people

My gym at home is all closed up and the door to the main part of the house is closed, I like to run a "sweat box", dont ask me why.

I force myself to eat every 2-3 hours.

My gym is very bad ventilated and hot, try to stay very well hydrated during the day before workout but i still drink about a gallon of water during workout and continue to drink through the evening afterwards. I also gave up the half-clean bulk i was on and now eat everything i can get my hands on (no reffined sugars though).

Biggest change for me is adding Gatorade to my water intake and chalk for the gym to combat my sweating.

If I was thinner and young, I would eat more ice cream and whole milk during Summer :)

Right now I live indoors so it doesn't bother me much.
