Candy Boosts Morale, Weight
The battle of the office candy jar - do I or don't I?
Certainly, during a stress-filled day, a treat from the office candy jar is the perfect remedy. But that little tasty goody doesn't come without its costs. Eating just a couple of pieces of candy each workday for a year can add up to nearly 25,000 calories!
Not that I'm trying to put a stop to the office treat brigade. Everyone can agree that food is a great way to bridge communication among officemates.

With the information from this article, you will at least know what you need to do to avoid the extra calories or work them off!
