Work makes women put on weight [news]

Women who work more than 35 hours every week are more likely to put on weight, according to a study. Research found career-driven women risk weight gain because they tend to spend less time preparing healthy food at home, taking exercise and getting the right amount of sleep. Australian researchers analysed 9276 women aged 45-50 over two years. Findings showed 55 per cent put on weight in that time with the average women gaining 1.5 per cent of her initial weight. Some were also reported to have experienced 'extreme' amounts of weight gain.
