Lockdown weight gain "averages half a stone" - Kyng - 07-26-2021

More than 40% of adults in England have gained weight during the pandemic, a survey suggests, with the average gain being half a stone (just over 3kg).

Public Health England (PHE), which surveyed 5,000 people, says Covid lockdowns and disrupted daily routines have made it challenging for people to eat healthy and keep fit.

Snacking and comfort eating were given as the main contributor by about half of those who said they were fatter.

PHE recommends a summer fitness drive.

Its Better Health campaign offers free support and guidance on how to lose excess weight and become active using a 12-week plan.



Well, I certainly hope I haven't put on half a stone during the pandemic -_- . But then, it's not like I was paying much attention to it pre-COVID: I wasn't going to the gym anyway, so I haven't been impacted by them being closed :lol: !

What about you?
