UK study suggests under 45s and women more likely to gain weight and jump a BMI category during lockdown

New research being presented at this year’s European Congress on Obesity (ECO) in Maastricht, Netherlands (4-7 May), suggests that most adults in the UK did not lose or gain enough weight following the first pandemic lockdown to change their body mass index (BMI) category, but indicates that young adults (aged 45 years or younger) and women were more likely to gain weight and move up at least one BMI category.
