10 Jobs That Are Causing You to Pack On the Pounds

If you find your waistline increasing, you can possibly blame your job. CareerBuilder recently came out with a study in which 44 percent of participants say they have gained weight at their current job. Here are some jobs that had a higher number of employees who say they've gained weight:

  • Travel agent
  • Attorney/judge
  • Social worker
  • Teacher
  • Artist/designer/architect
  • Administrative assistant
  • Physician
  • Protective services (police, firefighter)
  • Marketing/public relations professional
  • Information technology professional

Some of the reasons for job-related weight gain include stress-eating, skipping meals because of time constraints, and eating out regularly, according to the study.
