A Refreshing Perspective on COVID Weight Gain
Apr 24, 2021 Season 2 Episode 29
Rebecca Heald and Jeff Ash

As more and more begins to open up as a result of the vaccinations, many people are beginning to talk about, "the COVID 15" (or 20, 25, 50, etc.). Most of this talk of weight gain is done from a negative perspective ... a negative thing that needs to be fixed ASAP. How do people usually attempt to "fix" it? Yep, another diet.

In this episode, we discuss a recent article written by Marci Evans, a certified eating disorder registered dietician titled, "COVID Weight Gain & What It Really Means." 

In one of the quotes from the article that sets the foundation for our discussion, Evans writes, "Because our culture almost always frames weight gain as a bad thing, it’s important to appreciate all of the amazing and vital ways our bodies fight to protect us. And yes, that includes weight gain during times of intense stress."
