Quaranfifteen

What does the quaranfifteen mean?

Weight gained during COVID-19 quarantine

If someone says they've put on the quaranfifteen, it means they've gained weight during the COVID-19 pandemic. A mash-up of "quarantine" and "freshman fifteen," the term quaranfifteen is most likely to be used (and the weight is most likely to be gained) by those stuck in a rona-related quarantine or adhering to social distancing guidelines.

Because exercising became much harder during the COVID-19 pandemic, and because stress eating became much easier to justify, many people (especially those who began WFH and gained 24/7 access to their snack cabinet) gained weight during the crisis. The Internet quickly settled on the term "quaranfifteen" to describe this phenomenon, after briefly flirting with the term COVID-15.

Example

"Learning how to bake bread was a double-edged sword ... my weekly sourdough's definitely contributed to my quaranfifteen."
Baking out of boredom can also lead to the quaranfifteen
