If you’ve packed on the “quarantine 15,” as the COVID-related weight gain has been dubbed, and are having trouble taking it off, you’re not alone. “Turning to food in times of stress is common,” says Caryn Alter, MS, RD, FAND. Add to that the decreased opportunity for organized exercise and it’s no surprise that the quarantine 15 may have turned into the quarantine 20. But don’t lose hope.

The One Program You Need to Lose Quarantine Weight

This can be an optimal time to seize the moment and take back control of your health, says Alter. She adds that obesity not only increases the risk of a host of illnesses, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, but it also increases the chance of having severe symptoms from COVID-19.  “With more time at home, there’s more time to focus on yourself,” notes Alter. The Weigh of Life program sets you up for success.

“You’ll set reasonable goals for eating and physical activity, and aim for attainable weight loss goals,” says Alter. Research shows that losing five to 10 percent of one’s weight can delay or prevent medical conditions like diabetes and heart disease. (Related: Why You Aren’t Losing Weight on a Plant-Based Diet)
