Women Eat 100,000 Unnecessary Calories Every Year at Work
Women Eat 100,000 Unnecessary Calories Every Year at Work. Research shows that we get a lot of calories while we are sitting behind our desk. Have you just decided not to snack on your work, your colleague will come with a big pot with liquorice or a bowl of muffins because there is something to celebrate? Recognizable?
You have to be very strong in your shoes and then say ‘no.’ Research shows that we get a lot of calories on an annual basis while we are sitting at our desk.
What is it that we want to eat all day long at work and consume about 500 calories per day through our snacking behavior? Some people say that it is boredom, others think that the temptation is too big to say ‘no’ when something tasty is in front of us. Whatever the reason, they are all extra calories that our body does not need.
A recent study shows that women at work have an average annual appetite of 100,000 extra calories. This equates to fifty extra days of food intake per year. For example, we eat on average 135 biscuits, 90 slices of cake and 90 packets of sweets a year. We prefer to do this between 10:30 and 15:30 and on Mondays and Fridays. Maybe we can trade those 135 cookies more often for a carrot or piece of cucumber?
