More than two-thirds of the participants in the survey reported an increase in addiction to chocolate, chips and bakery products in the lockdown. One-third said that they started drinking colddrinks more than normal days. 46 percent attributed the compulsion to work from home for decreased physical activity and weight gain. More than half of the people admitted that they have been exercising almost since the lockdown was implemented.
