What is Corporate Obesity?

Corporate obesity is one of the most contagious diseases in adult community. One of the reasons for corporate obesity is born out of the desire for comfort. Companies place their employees in cabins/cubicles which are very well furnished and comfortable as compared to that at home. More number of hours are spent sitting whilst working. This comfort is often associated with increased consumption of food. Added to this are birthday celebrations, anniversaries and compensation for good work with complimentary lunches/dinners. Not to mention, many companies provide vending machines containing snacks and beverages that are mostly unhealthy.
