Wow, this is one of those awful things I just don’t want to think about, tough choice to make, do I work? Or do I look and feel good? Obviously that’s not really what’s at steak (pun intended here)… more to the point I think the idea is that as with all people, working a sedentary life, yes we are all more likely to put on some weight and therefore need to take a little extra care of ourselves:
“New research published this week in the International Journal of Obesity shows that working women are more likely to be overweight, and the more you work, the more pounds you’re likely to pile on.
Like many women, I work… a lot! As a self-employed nutrition communications specialist, I sit at my desk, in front of a computer, for hours on end. Sitting alone is one of the worst things you can do for your health, and it’s directly linked to being overweight, increased ab fat, and metabolic syndrome and Type 2 diabetes, so the fact that women in the workforce gain weight isn’t that surprising. If you work, you have less time to move around. Obesity researchers are revealing many other ways that employment is harmful to your diet and waistline.”
There’s some really good advice in the rest of the article on how to help beat those pounds back, read all about it at Huffpost health.
