Thanks to the pandemic, it doesn‘t depend anymore on a particular job where you sit all day and are spoiled by snacks and treats. Working from home does the trick. No commute, no walking. Gyms closed, no stop at the gym on the way home. At home, the „commute“ to the fridge is short and there are no co-workers observing how often and how much you eat. No one dropping any comments alluding to your weight gain. My wife gained more than 10 kg/22 lbs in five months of continiously working from home. 2kg per month just like that are quite a feat, right? This trend seems to continue pretty much unfettered.
