According to a new survey, the most overweight group of workers around are truck drivers.

And really, this shouldn’t be a surprise.

The job involves sitting for hours at a time only to stop at truck stops, which aren’t known for serving steamed broccoli and spinach salads.

Other overweight occupations include cleaning-service employees, mechanics, health-service workers, and office workers.

On the other hand, teachers, doctors, and lawyers tend to be thinner.
