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
- Social worker
- Administrative assistant
- 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.
