Long hours of work don't work well with women

Long hours at work for a woman may take her many steps forward in her career but is a setback to health//, researchers say.

It is well known that stress influences eating pattern. A study conducted by a Leeds University team has shown the tendency of a woman to adopt certain unhealthy behavior upon working long hours, which can cause ill health. Such women show a tendency to smoke more or consume too many snacks and may even go overboard on caffeine. The findings have revealed a milder impact on men, yet both border on unhealthy behavior pattern with long hours of work. Also, women who worked longer hours consumed snacks rich in sugars and drank more caffeine as compared to men.

Lead researcher Dr Daryl O'Connor said, "Stress disrupts people's normal eating habits. It causes people to opt for unhealthy high fat and high sugar snacks in preference to healthier food choices. Also, people under stress eat less than usual in their main meals, including their vegetable intake, but shift their preference to high fat/high sugar snacks instead."
