 Sitting at Your Desk the Whole Day?
Office workers who are at their desks during the day gain a lot of weight during their fist year on the job, a recent research has revealed.

The weight gain during the first year of a desk job could be an average of 10 pounds, revealed the research.

The main reason could be inactivity during a desk job as well as wrong eating habits and the tendency to snack in-between.

Nearly 75% of people who answered a survey as part of the research said that they consumed a lot more while they were at work.

It appears that employees are always fighting the temptation to snack on junk food and are having a tough time resisting sweet treats that people bring to office.

Though, it is a great gesture of sharing delicacies during work and promotes a positive work environment, the piling pounds may not be so sweet after all!
