It is well known that #genetics plays a role in the development of #obesity, yet the influence of #genetic risk for obesity on #food choice behaviors is not well understood.

Real-time assessment of workplace cafeteria purchasing data demonstrates that the highest quartile of a #genome-wide #polygenic score for #BMI (highest genetic risk for obesity) was associated with lower #dietary quality of all purchases, higher quantity of food purchases, later time of breakfast purchases, and lower likelihood of preparing dinner at home relative to the lowest quartile.

Dietary habits of at-home workers may have changed during #covid19 .

The results of the study are still relevant: #geneticrisk for obesity may influence eating behaviors that contribute to #weight , and could be targeted in #personalized workplace #wellness programs.
