The objectives of this study were to determine the nutritional status and dietary habits of the working population, and to make a comparative analysis in relation to the profession. The sample consisted of working population of health and non-health professionals. For the purpose of this research questionnaire was designed for personal data and information related to eating habits through the frequency of consumption of food groups on a weekly basis. The research results show that overweight and obesity are more present in the group of non-medical workers (36.7%; 13.3%), although the difference was not statistically significant. Analyzing the eating habits, it was found that only a small number of habits were significantly different. However, it was confirmed that the non-health workers eat more frequent white bread and sweets, while consuming fish less frequently, on a weekly basis than health workers. All other habits, were not significantly different. Based on these findings the conclusion is that working in the same surrounding of health and non-health workers contribut to similar eating habits.
