Food Heaven Podcast

May 6, 2020

Have you heard of the quarantine 15? It refers to weight gain during the COVID-19 pandemic, and lots of people have been concerned about it (queue the quarantine fitness challenges and weight loss plans) It doesn’t help that the media has been suggesting that people at higher weights are at a higher risk for COVID-related hospitalizations and ICU admissions. Today we’re diving into this topic and will get into: 

-The importance of challenging COVID weight gain concerns 

-Why the research suggesting people at higher weights are at higher risk is flawed 

-How race, socioeconomic status, and pre-existing conditions can impact COVID health outcomes

-The role body respect and neutrality can play in preserving your sanity during this time
