Abstract

This study describes changes in body weight among participants of the NutriNet Brazil cohort (n=14,259) during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Weight gain ≥2 kg reached 19.7% of the participants and it was and directly associated with male sex, lower education and baseline overweight status and inversely associated with age.
