5 Common Reasons Why You Keep Gaining Weight at Work


A desk job is one of the biggest culprits making you gain weight. The worst thing any office worker can do is to sit for hours working at a desk without moving around. Not only is it physiologically bad for the body it is extremely bad for health too. Among all the several unhealthy reasons of a desk job, here are 5 of the main reasons you’re gaining weight at work.

1 Eating just for the fun of company inspite of being full

Although you may have already eaten, a colleague may offer to share food and snacks. It could also be a special occasion such as a co workers birthday and there are several goodies flowing around. Such constant snacking at work grows into a habit making you put on pounds. Learn to say no or start storing the candy and sweet stuff in jars so you will be less tempted to reach for one.

2 You don’t bother about what you are eating

Even though you plan on a healthy diet routine that includes a healthy lunch but when you start work and its way past lunch time, your hunger makes you settle for just about anything. Before you know it, you’re digging into a pizza and deciding that your health plans can be delayed for one more day.

What you should do is to make a checklist of all the things that you eat in the week. This helps you track when your diet is being interrupted and form a strategy against it. Carry some healthy snacks with you so that could take away hunger pangs temporarily.
