Did you gain #Quarantine15?
Wed, Oct. 14, 2020

It’s easy to imagine how one might gain weight during the pandemic, especially if someone is spending most of their time at home. For a lot of Americans, it’s been a flux of snacks and alcohol. Comfort food recipes have been trending on Google, Twitter, and Instagram. Studies have yet to show how COVID-19 has impacted the average American citizens’ weight.

According to clinical director of the Yale Metabolic Health & Weight Loss Program, Artur Viana, MD, “Life has been disrupted in a major way.” 

The way our bodies are dealing with stress this year, coupled with how we are coping, whether with food and alcohol or simply being less active than before — Quarantine is taking a toll on our health. In serious cases, obesity is directly affected by COVID-19. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), severe obesity increases the risk of a dangerous breathing problem called acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), which is a serious complication of COVID-19.

However, don’t fret! Losing weight during the pandemic is extremely attainable! According to the  CDC, Your BMI is considered healthy if it falls between 18.5 and 25, and overweight if it is between 25 and 30—a good reason to adjust your diet and exercise routine. When your BMI reaches 30, people begin to have an extremely difficult time losing weight without medical support and interventions.

Long story short, if you’re worried about that #Quarantine15, you can get those buns moving at home with this 25 minute HIIT workout from YouTuber, Toni Mitchell!
