IT workers told, 'Put down the biscuits, fat boy'

BCS orders physical jerks

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

The BCS is urging tech workers to get fit for the New Year and has set up a website to help them shift the extra pounds.

A survey last year put IT workers at the bottom of the league for fitness. In fact the only thing tech workers came out on top for was drinking coffee - with an average of ten cups a day.

Only 14 per cent of tech workers get their government-mandated five fruit or vegetables a day and only 19 per cent did enough exercise.

Enter the Chartered Institute for IT, as the BCS prefers to be called, which hopes tech workers will use the new year as a reason to get fit.

It has set up a website to help frustrated techies lose some weight and improve their 'wellness'.

The Savvy Citizens website promises tips on fitness and there's even a video from a top telly doctor called Dr Sarah Jarvis. There's information on cholesterol, body mass index and heart disease.

The site also offers dozens of links to other sources of health and fitness information. ®
