We are all guilty of it.
Janice brings in some cookies she made over the weekend for her dinner party that got canceled. (Sure...canceled...'cause it was totally gonna happen...)
Bob orders everyone pizza because he's just a nice guy. (It's definitely NOT because he's a jerk and really wants people to like him for just this week so they'll help him with his big project.)
Justin brings in donuts on Friday because he likes to make people happy. (That's actually a true story and it really is quite nice of him )
Whatever it is. Whoever brings it. We've all given in to free or unhealthy food at work.
Well, a recent study shows that all those calories are (not so surprisingly) catching up with people.
The study looked at 5,222 employees and found that the average person consumes 1,200 calories of food and drinks at work every week.
Stephen Onufrak, an epidemiologist in the Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, was the lead author of study.
“Nearly one in four working adults obtained food at work during the week, and the food and beverages that they got added up to an average of nearly 1,300 calories, more than half the recommended daily calorie intake for the average adult. With employees spending eight hours a day on average at their place of employment, a lot of people may not be aware of all of the calories they get from work, especially from foods they get for free.”
