If you’re one of the unlucky Bostonians with an awful daily commute...here’s more bad news!
Researchers at the University of British Columbia have found that people with long commutes are more likely to be overweight.
Findings show that every half-hour spent in a car translates into a 3% greater chance of being overweight.
Now…does that ½ hour figure count fast food and the drive-thru at Dunkin’ Donuts?
Is your long commute causing you to gain weight???
“When you spend time in the car, you end up with that exhausted feeling, as if you just ran 10 miles," Ryan says. "It's pushing through this effect to make results with your body and health. Car time means less motivation as well as increased fat."
