Belgians Get Fat

I expect that the results would be similar in the U.S.

A major study by the public science institute Sciensano involving over 40,000 participants said that during the lockdown, twice as many adults had succumbed to a sedentary lifestyle as two years ago. A total of 56.1 percent said they were sitting or at rest for more than 8 of their waking hours. On average, adults are now sitting or resting 8.6 hours during their waking day compared with 5.8 hours two years ago.

A quarter of respondents said they had gained weight while locked inside, with the oven churning out homemade pastries breads and other recipes from long-forgotten cookbooks.

    This will end up killing more than virus long term.

    But we never discuss the trade-offs, it always about the emotional liberal freak out of the moment.

    Correct mar, sitting on your tusch instead of being active is a choice . So is eating high calorie food. Finally you caught on. It’s never too late to learn.
