14 Ways Truck Drivers Can Avoid Getting Fat

Why are truck drivers fat? Sure, there are fat truck drivers, I’m not going to argue against that. Being fat is not unique to truck drivers though. Just take a look around you and you will probably quickly notice that being fat does not discriminate by job type.
