Lack of physical activity, snacking, stress… A study published by the Ifop estimated that the French took, on average, 2.5 pounds during the confinement.
This weight gain concerns more specifically the parisian women and rural men, according to the institute of survey, and more people who are already overweight or very thin as the other.
If you are part of the 57 % of French people who claim to have grown during the confinement, don’t panic ! Interviewed by France Bleu, the nutritionist montpellier Laurent Chevallier believes that most of us should not have too much trouble losing these extra pounds.
It is appropriate for him to redirect his power by reducing the amount of food the more calories, such as combining systematically starchy foods and vegetables. The expert warns, however :
Relaxation and activity
Why ? Because it is a source of stress and that we all have our dose during this period. The food then acts as a ” security blanket “. Relax is therefore one of the imperatives for losing pounds of containment. The resumption of activities is at the heart of the strategy, knowing that physical activity helps to secrete endorphins, the famous hormone of well-being.
Again, it is not to throw themselves headlong in a sports activity. The recovery must be gradual and moderate.
