Anxiety and Weight Gain Running High in California During COVID-19

Lindora, A Leading Ketogenic Weight Loss & Wellness Expert, Validates Widely Held Beliefs

There’s been a general sense that Americans are feeling more anxious and gaining more weight during the COVID-19 era. Based on a recent survey conducted by Lindora, a leading expert in the weight loss and wellness field, it appears that Southern Californians are carrying more stress and tipping the scales at numbers higher than usual.

The survey looked to gauge the overall well-being of Southern Californians since mid-March, when the state of California first put Stay at Home orders in place.

“We found that the majority of people we surveyed had put on weight since COVID-19 hit, when people were forced to quarantine at home,” said Dr. Amy Lee, Lindora’s Chief Medical Officer.

Of those surveyed, nearly 60% said they had gained weight since mid-March. The average weight gained was between 5 and 9 pounds, but nearly 30% of respondents said they had gained between 10 and 20 pounds (or more) during the short, seven-month period.

Respondents were also asked about their anxiety levels, which can often lead to poor eating habits and excess weight gain. More than 60% of survey respondents said that they have been experiencing higher than usual levels of anxiety and stress.

The survey also found that more than 50% of respondents were exercising less than they were prior to the onset of COVID-19.

“The results of the survey align with what we’re seeing in our clinics,” said Will Righeimer, Lindora’s CEO. “People are struggling to stay healthy right now. We’re seeing an increasingly high number of in-person visits since the start of COVID-19, over 400,000, by new and existing patients who are in need of counseling, products and services in order to stay healthy and get back on track.”

Lindora is an essential health care operation and licensed with the California Medical Board, and treats weight loss patients who are often at higher risk for disease, including those with chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder. All of the company’s clinics have remained open since the very beginning of the pandemic, while traditional, non-medical weight loss or fitness companies were forced to close their doors or file bankruptcy.

Respondents of the survey also indicated that getting personal help and attention during this time is important for their journey back to good health. 62% percent of those surveyed said that they felt they would be more successful on a weight loss program if they had day-to-day, in-person accountability. Righeimer pointed out that particular finding was principal. “Most new patients that come to Lindora have tried other programs and failed – mostly because they didn’t have that in-person support and accountability – and that’s exactly what Lindora
