#N12BK: Americans don't take lunch breaks

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

A new study reveals one in two American workers don't get to take a full lunch break.

According to the study, American workers say they are unable to take a full lunch break because it interferes and distracts them from their work.

Those in the study say they felt pressured to finish their work, so taking a lunch was not an option.

The study showed workers who do take a lunch often ate at their desks instead of going out.

The study showed 49 percent of people agreed lunch was a distraction from finishing their work.

Americans ages 18 to 44 say taking a full lunch break is just not realistic.

The study found 68 percent of workers got through the day while snacking at least twice.
