Americans Packed on Pounds During the Pandemic
A new study finds many people have put on some extra pounds during the pandemic.
The research published in Jama Network Open found some people gained an average of nearly 2 pounds per month when stay-in-place orders were in effect.
Scientists look at 7,500 weight measurements from 269 participants. They say on average participants gained 0.6 pounds every 10 days, which equals about 1.8 pounds per month.
