Eating well-balanced meals will help you stay warmer during winter weather. Do not drink alcoholic or caffeinated beverages -- they cause your body to lose heat more rapidly. Instead, drink warm, sweet beverages or broth to help maintain your body temperature. If you have any dietary restrictions, ask your doctor.
