Times are already challenging enough then you step on the scale and see that your weight has gone up. During these times stress has increased, activity has decreased, gyms are closed, and we are turning to comfort food which means the pounds might be increasing. With all that is going on across the nation because of the novel coronavirus, the “freshman 15” has given way to a new kind of weight gain now referred to as “quarantine 15”.
In the United States, more women say they’ve put on the pounds in isolation, while internationally, more men report they’ve had to loosen their belts thanks to the pandemic.
In a poll of 1,012 US WebMD readers, 47% of women and 22% of men responded they have gained weight “due to COVID restrictions.” Most said their weight gain was relatively minimal, with 75% reporting a weight gain between 1 and 9 pounds. Only 4 percent of respondents said they had packed on over 21 pounds, and 21% said they’d gained between 10 and 20.

The state-of-the-art DEXA scanner is the Gold Standard in body fat assessment. The scanner offers comprehensive body-fat analyses far superior to those of any other method. Specifically, the scanner gives a detailed printout of the percentage of your body fat over 14 regions of the body. To do this, DEXA employs a whole body scan that passes over you for a comfortable, non-invasive test of body fat composition. Testing your body fat will give you a better measure of fitness than weight alone and can help you refine fitness goals based on your body composition and progress in your fitness and diet programs.
Dr. Bhatia is pleased to offer a “Stay Fit for Summer” campaign that includes two DEXA body fat assessments for a special price of $100 total. The total includes printouts of body fat assessment for you and for your trainer.
