Forty-Five Percent of U.S. Employees Have Gained Weight at Their Current Jobs, CareerBuilder.com Study Finds
Date:5/14/2008

ine at least once a week.

Snacking can also be a slippery slope for those trying to cut back on calories, as two-thirds (66 percent) of employees surveyed snack at least once a day, while nearly 25 percent snack at least twice a day.

One of the ways employees can cut back on workplace weight gain is by heading to the gym during lunch hour, but according to the survey, only 9 percent of employees work up a sweat in the middle of the day.

More employees may be inclined to take advantage of gym facilities during lunch and outside of work, though, as 28 percent of companies now provide gym passes, workout facilities or wellness benefits.

Haefner recommends the following tips for fending off workplace weight gain:

* Start the day off right -- Eating a high-protein and fiber-filled

breakfast can provide the energy you need to get you to lunch and avoid

the temptation of break room donuts, candy or other high-fat treats.

* Stay hydrated -- Sometimes a snack craving can be mistaken for

dehydration. Be sure to keep water or another healthy beverage at your

desk throughout the day so that you can hydrate freely.

* Write it down -- Keeping a nutrition and food journal can help you

track how your snacks and meals add up during the day, allowing you to

notice when you overindulge.

* Mix up your routine -- Every little bit of activity helps, so take the

stairs to your floor, walk over to co-workers instead of calling or

emailing them or try parking your car farther away from the office.

* Keep your cool -- Stress can fuel poor eating habits, as you can tend

to overeat or make inadequate food choices when you're feeling

overwhelmed. Try to manage stress with regular exercise and speak with

a supervisor if you're workload is drowning you.
