According to a new survey by CareerBuilder, 55% of people say they’re overweight and two in five say it’s because of their job.  I know from being in radio, that sitting around doesn’t burn many calories and if you’re like me, sitting around doesn’t inspire me to want to move much either. You just feel stuck.

Most of us we’ve gained at least 10 pounds because of their job  and one in three people say it’s at least 20.

The main reasons are sitting at a desk all day  and eating from stress.  Here are the top five jobs where more than HALF of employees gain weight.

1.  Administrative assistants  (like secretaries and receptionists). The study states that 69% say they’ve gained weight at their current job.

2.  Engineers- 56%.

3.  Teachers-51%.

4.  Nurse practitioners and physicians’ assistants- 51%.

5.  IT managers and network engineers- 51%.

The study found that attorneys, machine operators, and scientists also gain weight.
