Author(s): Upasna Seth and Bhavya Chopra
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused massive impact on human health, bringing sudden lifestyle changes, through social distancing and isolation causing social and economic concerns. Enhancing public health during this pandemic requires not only knowledge from the medical and biological sciences, but also of all human sciences related to lifestyle, social and behavioural studies, including dietary habits and lifestyle. There is currently no drug approved for which efficacy on the virus has been proved. The only approach against this virus is to reduce its spread with measures such as isolation and quarantine, social distancing, use of mask and hand washing. Quarantine has proved to be effective in combating the spread of the virus; however, it has inevitably led to a radical change in the lives of people. This review article aimed to investigate the immediate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown on eating habits and lifestyle changes and their possible correlation with increase in body weight.
