CDC: Work food could be affecting your waistline
Average weekly calories consumed through food at work topped 1,200
New research suggests food available at your workplace may be making you fat.
A new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that 23 percent of U.S. adults get food or drinks at work at least once a week.
This can be through a vending machine, cafeteria or free during a meeting.
The average weekly calories consumed through food at work topped 1,200. The foods often have a low nutritional value -- are high in calories, high sodium and made with refined grains.
Improving the nutritional quality of foods available in your workplace can be a major component in wellness efforts.
