“My COVID-19 is the most weight I’ve gained since my Freshman 15”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic resulted in home lockdowns. Many people did not get enough exercise and ate a lot, gaining weight similar to a college student’s “freshman 15” (pounds).

“Anyone else noticing a different #covid19 that is more like the freshman 15? Working from home = more snacks” was posted on Twitter by Megan Graff on March 12, 2020. “#COVID19 staying home & eating snacks all day is the new Freshman 15” was posted on Twitter by Doneliza Joaquin on March 13, 2020. “My COVID-19 is the most weight I’ve gained since my Freshman 15” was posted on Reddit—Oneliners on May 1, 2020. 


Wikipedia: 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak
The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic is an ongoing global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The outbreak was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei, China, in December 2019, and was recognised as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on 11 March 2020.

So everyone is stuck at home, buying a ton of food and booze. Forget the freshman 15, are we about to gain the COVID 19? #allthefood #allthebooze #COVID #covid19

In college, stress eating, drinking too much and lack of exercise gave you the “Freshman 15”.
When this quarantine is over, “The Covid 19” may well have a new meaning for our collective waistlines. #COVID19

Covid19 is basically the freshman 15 from college, but just 4 extra pounds.

It’s called #COVID19 because of how much weight you gain in #Quarantine . It’s the new freshman 15.

When kids go off to college and gain weight, it’s commonly referred to as the “Freshman 15”
With this quarantine, never has it been more accurate to call it “COVID-19” cuz I’m definitely gaining at least 19lbs while #StayAtHome orders are in place

Middle age Covid19 is like the “freshman 15” with more bourbon and less lite beer.
