A survey done recently by CareerBuilder found that attorneys and judges are more likely to report gaining weight in their current jobs than those in other professions.

Certain occupations – like those where workers are often more sedentary or in high-stress positions – reported higher incidence of workers piling on the pounds at work. In addition to the legal profession, doctors, teachers, travel agents and IT professionals are occupations that reported battling the bulge.

The survey found 44 percent of people reported gaining weight at their current job – 26 percent gained more than 10 pounds and 14 percent reported gaining more than 20 pounds. That walk around the block during lunch or the treadmill desk  is looking a bit more attractive now.
