It would be interesting if they did a study on the BMI rates of people by sector in which they work.

For example, construction, leisure and hospitality and manufacturing have more movement involved with them over a work day then a financial services job.
Google is your friend. This article is from 2013 but there is more data out there.

Sarcasm says it all. Thanks. Make sure to put the arm floaties away when you are done.

I agree.

This is like the third or fourth thread lovecrowds has started here that could easily be in a different forum.

I worked in various offices for 35+ years but always found the time to work out, play sports, and exercise.
Excuses is all people have for their own afflictions. Get off your arse and move.

I blame my weight gain on eating too much, and my credit my weight loss to eating less. I love working out, but it makes only a marginal difference in keeping the weight off since exercise makes me even hungrier than I would be otherwise. I actually found it easier to lose weight when I was once laid up for 6 weeks after an operation.
