IT workers voted the unhealthiest employees

Just 19% hit weekly activity levels

Brits that work in IT have topped a poll of the most unhealthiest employees, says Fat Free Fitness.

According to the personal training website, just 19 percent of IT workers met the government's activity guidelines, which recommend half an hour of moderate exercise, five times a week. IT workers are closely followed by receptionists and sales people.

When it comes to diet, IT workers are also unhealthy, with only 14 percent eating five portions of fruit and vegetables a day, while 50 percent said they drink energy drinks every day.

On average IT workers consume 10 cups of coffee a day, which is more than your recommended daily allowance of caffine.

"There is clearly a correlation between sitting at a desk or wheel all day and how active you're likely to be," said Rich Leigh, founder of Fat Free Fitness.
