How the Pandemic Is Changing Our Diet and Exercise Habits, According to Research

Since the start of the pandemic has your lifestyle grown more or less healthy? I don’t know about you, but I know when I try to think through this question, the answer is complicated. 

Being stuck at home more means I cook more, which is probably a health win, but then I have to confess to enjoying more wine since this whole thing began too.

    Adam Woodyatt weight loss: EastEnders star slimmed down by cutting carbs from diet

    Adam Woodyatt, 52, has opened up about his weight loss journey over the years. After taking a break from the television screens, Adam looks slimmer than ever in recent social media snaps. How did he lose weight?

    “Roads and cycle paths were quiet so it was really enjoyable.”

    Cycling is an excellent cardio workout and as well as weight loss, it can also improve lung and heart health.

    It also minimises strength on joints, offering a great form of cardio workout.

    Exercising also helps slimmers boost their metabolism, meaning more calories are burnt throughout the day.

    In October, Adam explained that he was doing everything he could to improve his fitness levels by racing Paul Chuckle during a trip to Scarborough.

    In a shot video he posted on Instagram, he said: “Chuckle took the tram and I ran up the steps. There was a few of them.”

    78-year-old Paul McCartney’s fitness routine: yoga headstands and diet

    At 78, Beatles co-founder Paul McCartney is still working, writing new music and, until the Covid-19 pandemic hit, performing in concerts. In 2019, McCartney grossed just over $100 million on solo shows, according to Forbes.

    One strategy that helps the septuagenarian stay active as he ages? A fitness routine. McCartney described his approach to wellness on a recent episode of the podcast “Smartless,” hosted by Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes and Will Arnett.

    “I have a very definite routine,” McCartney explained on the podcast. But he doesn’t have a personal trainer, “it’s just me,” he said.

    First, “I get on the mat, and I do a bunch of stuff there,” McCartney said. For example, he said he stretches his legs and uses a foam roller.

    “Then, I move over to a cross-trainer,” also known as an elliptical machine, McCartney said. Sometimes he will “do a bit of running” for added cardio.
