IT Workers Are Getting Fatter

This story did not surprise me. For the reasons mentioned in the article.

Then again, don’t take advice from me on any of this. It turns out that 11 percent of IT workers buy their lunch from what CareerBuilder called “a notoriously unhealthy vending machine at least once a week.”

Then at the end I got the real bad news.

But, hey, no matter the culprits, IT workers can take heart in another CareerBuilder finding: They are less chubby than financial services and government workers. Fifty-three percent of financial workers said they have gained weight at their current jobs, while the number for government workers is 52 percent.

I work for the government and we sure have our share of overweight employees.
