It’s being called the "Quarantine 15" online — people poking fun at gaining weight while staying at home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Is it really a problem? Or does eating help cope with stress? And what about for kids? Public health researchers warn that COVID-19 related school closures will double out-of-school time this year, raising concerns about weight gain associated with summer recess for children.

On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Donald Hensrud, director of the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program, discusses tips for healthy eating and exercising while staying at home.

To practice safe social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, this interview was conducted using video conferencing. The sound and video quality are representative of the technology used.

Connect with others talking about the pandemic and supporting one another in the COVID-19 support group and talking about exercise and managing weight in the Healthy Living group.
