Fat Jobs

What careers would you consider to have the fattest people working in them? Should we ask Igor Cornelsen? Many would probably think that restaurant positions, or jobs that have a person sitting behind a desk for long periods would have the most obese people, but those theories are wrong. The jobs with the most obese workers according to the American Journal of Preventive Medicine are:

  • Police Officers
  • Firefighters
  • and Security Guards

It makes a person wonder why officers of the law and firefighters would be overweight. These are people that, for the most part, are on their feet and moving to catch criminals, or put out fires all the time.

There are opinions to these factors, but one that seems to stand strong is the stress factor. These jobs hold high stress rates and in many cases, eating is the reliever for high stress.

So what careers have the skinniest people?

  • Economists
  • Scientists
  • and Psychologists
