Office workers consume over 3,000 calories per day



The average office worker consumes as many as 3,295 calories per day – between 795 and 1,295 more than the recommended daily amount – leading to an annual weight gain of 9lbs per year.


According the a study of over 2,000 office workers by www.VoucherCodesPro.co.uk, colleagues offering around snacks, unhealthy breakfasts and team lunches are their biggest diet downfalls.
 
Additionally, more than half of respondents (56%) confessed to prepping their food for work each day, but more often than not purchased additional food or unhealthy food throughout the day.
  
George Charles, spokesperson for www.VoucherCodesPro.co.uk, commented: “A lot of people around the UK have a job that requires even a small amount of manual labour, helping them to keep on their feet and keep a certain level of fitness. Office workers don’t have this, finding themselves sat down at a desk for at least eight hours a day, more if they’re working overtime, and when there are snacks floating around it’s hard not to get involved. It’s all about finding a balance; eat the snacks, but eat just as much fruit and veg – or better yet, get a gym membership and make time a few days a week to get a bit of exercise in, which will help to counteract the weight gain.”
