It is safe to say COVID impacted, and continues to affect, daily life. This past year has been one of uncertainty and anxiety, forcing us all to alter our lifestyles, whether good or bad. The stress experienced by many led to changes in sleep and increased food and alcohol consumption. That, coupled with gym closures and less physical activity, led to weight gain. According to a survey by the American Psychological Association (APA) of more than 3,000 people, 42% experienced undesired weight gain, with an average gain of 29 pounds.
Extra weight that people have gained as a result of the pandemic can actually make them more susceptible to COVID-19. According to the CDC, people who are overweight may be at increased risk. And as one’s body-mass index (BMI) increases, their risk of death from COVID-19 also increases.
