Let's face it, we all get hungry at work. We all need to snack during the day to keep our metabolism going so we have enough energy to get through the work day. However, studies show that most of the time we are snacking at our desk because we are bored or stressed. This usually means we are eating just to eat. We are not mindfully thinking about what we are eating, we just eat whatever is convenient or available.
The average employee snacks twice per day. It's easy to see why people can easily gain up to ten pounds per year just snacking on "empty or extra calories" during the day. This is huge problem as workplace obesity is now costing 114 Billion, according to a recent Study from the National Institute of Health.
We all know bagels with cream cheese and doughnuts are hard to resist if they are provided at work as an "incentive or treat". However, when it comes to office treats, most employees say they do not want to be exposed to high fat foods all the time and they would prefer a healthier option.
Snacking can be healthy, delicious and help productivity! Workers who eat healthier diets feel better and work more efficiently. They also have fewer health related problems associated with those who have unhealthy diets.
