Does moving from ancestral latitude alter appetite?

I asked a question previously on why my appetite diminishes when I go to a place like Bali (which is hotter and more humid than my normal climate where i live as well as my ancestral one - Mediterranean) and was wondering if anyone has had any thoughts about how shifting to a different latitude may affect appetite. Especially when appetite increases! We all experience a bit of padding during winter months but what about the possibility of the appetite control system getting screwed if we move to a place that's colder than what we're accustomed to ancestrally?

Living in Florida, I tend to eat less in summer time. Eating temporarily raises your metabolism and increases body heat, so of course you'd naturally want to eat cooler foods or less of them altogether when it's hot outside.
