The No. 1 culprit? Their desk! 54% of respondents attributed their weight gain to sitting at their desk most of the day, and roughly the same amount - 56% - stated they often eat at their desk as well.
Other culprits causing extra inches around the waistline include:
- Stress-related eating - 37%
- Eating out regularly - 23%

- Workplace celebrations (potlucks, birthdays) - 25%
- The temptation of the office candy jar - 16%
