The long, cold, damp, sunless days. The miserable, foreboding, leafless trees. The lowly snow banks encrusted with sand and salt and all manner of icky litter. Ohhh, February. You're the shortest month of the year. Why do you seem to go on forever? The whole thing makes me want to curl up on my couch and watch mindless reality TV with a never-ending can of Pringles. (Do you think there is such a thing? Maybe at Costco?) February brings me down and it's tempting to make myself feel better with food. Apparently, cutting-edge brain imaging technology shows that we're driven to overeat to satisfy pleasure centres in our brains. How can we fight that?
