Eat a lot around November (5)


I believe the answer is:


I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'eat' is the definition.
(I know that munch is a type of bite)

'a lot around november' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite see how this works, but
'lot' could be 'm' and 'm' is found within the answer.
'around' could be 'c' (abbreviation for 'circa') and 'c' is located in the answer.
'november' could be 'n' (phonetic alphabet: alpha, bravo, charlie etc.) and 'n' is present in the answer.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for munch that I've seen before include "Chomp" , "Eat noisily" , "Eat steadily; Norw. artist" , "champ" , "He depicted" .)
