The human metabolism is not affected by weather, and therefore does not slow down due to wintertime. Metabolisms is affected by diet, exercise, and genetics and could be slowed only for these reasons. Since the typical person will get less exercise in winter due to the cold or snowy conditions a person’s metabolism is more likely to be affected during winter months. Next time you are worried about gaining weight in the winter make sure you get enough exercise and don’t blame it on a metabolism that is out of your control.
To add to codyurb’s answer, animals that would be affected by the weather would be what we call “cold-blooded.” Ectotherms rely on solar energy to metabolise and when that energy is sparse in the winter their metabolism slows. Reptiles, amphibians, and fish are all cold blooded animals.
