NEED-TO-KNOW-POLOPOLY

Working from home? This is how many extra Calories you’re consuming!

According to a new survey, if you’re working at home there’s a very good chance you’re snacking a lot more than if you were at work.

On average if you’re working from home you’ll be snacking your way to around 800 more calories!

The typical at home work day consists of an average of 2,752 calories compared to the 1,961 consumed at work. And not only do calories go up; but your steps go down. A usual day in the office will add up to 8,087 steps while working from home is about 4,518!
