According to a study by Career Builder, 41% of Americans will gain weight as a result of their desk jobs. Dr. Lisa Clark’s new guidebook, “Lighten Up America” helps to identify common and correctable causes of weight gains.
Dr. Clark offers the following words of advice for those looking to shape up in the office.
- Try a standing desk:
“A standing desk not only improves posture and core strength, it is also a welcome change of pace to an everyday routine.”
- Separate food from your office social life:
“Many workplaces link food to employee interaction through events such birthdays, client meetings and holidays. Learning to socialize without food can make for healthier and happier employees.”
- Bring a water bottle:
“Many people eat throughout the work day not because they are hungry, but because they are bored. Bringing a water bottle to work not only helps with hydration, it also goes a long way towards eliminating cravings.”
Dr. Lisa Clark currently practices in Destin, FL.
