The phenomenon of weight gain during quarantine is indeed genuine, and the endeavor to shed those extra pounds is as challenging. The 38th annual conference of The Obesity Society centered on the ramifications of home confinement for those with obesity.
At this time, 69.9% of individuals are unable to attain their weight loss objectives, according to research. If you find yourself in this category as well, the following five potential causes may explain the situation.
Studies reveal that eating 10 to 50 additional calories per day might hinder weight reduction. We all know it's simple to eat 10–50 more calories on average. The present epidemic is bad and has been connected to high-fat diet consumption.
Although it's true that many people have difficulty achieving their weight loss objectives, this isn't the case for all. A recent study revealed that some people are more adept than others at resisting food urges when under pressure.
The study's authors attribute their findings in part to a person's genetic make-up. In response to stress, our bodies release the hormone cortisol, which can slow our metabolism and increase our desire for fatty, comfort foods.
Grocery hoarding also called as stockpiling does make sense during the epidemic. It's easy to overeat when there's always a lot of food available. In addition, the issue is exacerbated by the participants' boredom during the lockdown.
All of us know that binge-watching has escalated throughout the epidemic. In obese persons, the rise is greater. But additional hours of sitting each day reduces muscular activation and calorie burn. All this inactivity can cause muscle loss, metabolic slowdown, and fat.
In addition to food, there has been a rise in alcohol consumption throughout the epidemic. In addition to eating, excessive alcohol use might also impede your weight loss objectives.
