Why You Should Probably Stop Snacking at Work That extra cupcake from the break room is doing more damage than you thought.

A study from the CDC Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was held to determine how much junk food employees consume while on the job.

The study focused on food and beverages available from vending machines, cafeterias, and for free in common areas, meetings and social events.

The results showed that participants were averaging 1,300 calories a week from snacking.

More than 70 percent of those calories was from free food.
