ARE YOU SNACKING TOO MUCH AT THE OFFICE?
If you’re trying to lose weight, snacking in the office can really add up to quite a lot of extra calories.
A survey of 1000 women for Dutch food make Kallo revealed that this could add up to an astonishing 100,000 extra calories a year.
This average total annual consumption at work was the equivalent of a additional 50 days’ food intake.
This mostly consisted of cakes, sweets, crisps, chocolates, milk shakes and sugary drinks.
Those who responded to the survey admitted that over the 45 working weeks in a year, they consumed, on average 2240 extra calories every week -or 100,800 total extra calories a year.
This is the equivalent of a huge 502 bars of chocolate.
Crisps were the biggest snacking secret these women admitted to, with an average of 135 bags eaten annually at desks.
Not only that, another 45 per cent actually admitted to having a personal ‘stash’ of them at the office.
‘We live in a kind of grazing society,’ says consultant dietitian Helen Bond.
‘I’m not surprised by these results, but people need to be aware that an extra 3,500 calories a week, means you put on an extra pound of fat.’
She goes on to say that because we live in a society where we have an abundance of food 24 hours a day, we end up with the desire to snack.
But why did these women who were surveyed snack so much?
Their main reasons were being tired, stressed, or even bored, and these treats helped them feel better.
Strangely enough, 83 per cent started their day with the intention to eat healthy.
And so the question remains.
Are you an office muncher?
If so, how many extra calories could you be adding every year?
