People driving to work every day are packing on more pounds than their colleagues on trains, buses and bikes, according to a new study from Australia.

“Even if you are efficiently active during leisure time, if you use a car for commuting daily then that has an impact on weight gain,” lead author Takemi Sugiyama of the Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute in Melbourne told Reuters Health.
