A study found that men eat more in the summer because sunlight makes them hungrier.   When the light hits the skin it boosts an appetite-stimulating hormone, ghrelin.  The study was based on 3,000 participants and showed that between March and September the males ate 17% more calories per day. The women were not affected.
