MONDAY, JUNE 6, 2011

Thanks to a daily regimen of endless sitting, stressful deadlines, and a pound-packing parade of bagels, donuts, and treats from co-workers, office jobs and weight gain tend to go hand-in-hand. But they don't have to! For the next few weeks, we'll be taking nominations for our Second Annual Be Well Philly Office Challenge. Learn how to get your office on the road to wellness and lifelong weight loss below. We've also got a summery hummus recipe from Maura, build-your-own-chicken-coop tips, a video of the craziest weight-loss gimmick ever, the deets on Sculpere, a new yoga/Pilates/barre studio opening this month, and my thoughts on why the USDA's new food guidelines will make you fat. Enjoy! Jenna Bergen, Health and Fitness Editor
