Lockdown made us fat and lazy - Pharma Dynamics survey
Lockdown made us fat.
A new Pharma Dynamics survey shows lockdown has negatively impacted about 45% of respondents’ eating and excising habits.
About 44% of respondents picked up between two and five kilogrammes while 15% has gained between six and 10 kilograms.
Four percent of those who took part in the survey picked up 10 kilogrammes or more.
“Many of the respondents polled attributed the change in their eating habits to stress and anxiety of what the future holds and 42% said being confined to their homes led to snacking and impulsive eating,” said Pharma Dynamics spokesperson Nicole Jennings.
“Twenty-eight percent also said they ate out of boredom and 42% were exercising less than they did before the pandemic.”
Many Wiener interviewed Jennings.
