From coffee breaks to enjoying piping hot samosas at work, we all are suffering from the menace of snacking. The unavoidable urge to drink or eat something filling after every few hours is making us guzzle a lot of extra calories. According to a research conducted by an organic food maker, we end up consuming more than 100,000 extra calories each year in the name of snacking. To put the things in perspective, your daily consumption of 500 extra calories could lead you to gain up to 2 kilogram in a month. Too bad!!

Here is the list of snacks you should stop eating at work.

1. Coffee

While the regular dose of caffeine keeps you going at work, it also makes you fat. A cup of milk coffee adds up to 100 calories. So, 4 cups a day is 400 calories.

2. Samosa

Samosa party is a common sight in any office. But there are 250-300 calories in a samosa and loads of unhealthy oil.
