WOODBURY - A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says certain professions make people prone to packing on the pounds. Matt Davanzo, a bond broker, says it's hard to stay active when he spends his whole day on the computer and phone. "I've probably gained like 30 pounds since I started working at the job I'm working at now," he says. Registered dietician Marlo Mittler says she's not surprised by the study, but advises there are measures people can take to be healthier and more active. "On the time away from the office, you should really try to exercise more - park further away from the office," Miller says. "There are foods on the market - there are yogurts that have fiber in them - they're more filling, will satisfy you and you won't be at your desk grazing and grazing."
