Losing our Lockdown Weight

Many of us have gained a little (or more than a little) weight during the various lockdowns of the last 18-months. The government has launched their Better Health Campaign to actively encourage people to adopt a healthier lifestyle which could and should result in us losing our lockdown weight.

One thing the COVID pandemic taught us was that the NHS is already under pressure – there are many factors involved – some are avoidable health issues – obesity being one of them. Carrying too much weight is not just an aesthetic issue, there are long documented health issues directly linked to obesity.

  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Stroke

However, if you are keen to lose weight (lockdown or otherwise) some of these issues can be reversed by adopting a calorie-controlled diet – combined with regular exercise. By reducing our calorie intake and increasing our exercise we inevitably become fitter – both physically and mentally.

However, if it was as simple as doing just that – we’d all be fit and healthy! There are many reasons why people are overweight – It isn’t as simple as overeating. For some, it’s a health problem, for others illness or injury. For many it can be their relationship with food – we’ve all heard the term ‘overeating’. One of the problems with losing weight is how our brain itself works. As the control centre of our appetite and cravings. The brain can trigger both for a variety of reasons, not just when we are hungry.

What’s not as fun is being over faced by chocolate, roast dinners, and calories when you’re trying to shift some weight.
