Everyone dreams of working at Google, even people like me who don't stand a chance at a job with the consistently top rated company. Why? The one story I hear about Google over and over again is how they feed their people. Recently, Google revealed the secrets
to keeping their employees' waistlines trim amongst the mountains of gourmet treats they provide.
Rather than lecture their employees with rants about nutrition and healthy eating, they stealthily creep into their minds with these subtle tactics.
1. Studies show that people fill up on what's closest to them. The salad bar is right up front at the cafeteria while the dessert bar is discretely tucked away in the back.
2. A sign at the entrance of the cafeteria reads, "taking a bigger plate will cause you to eat x-percent more." Google says that this sign lead more people to choose smaller plates and in turn eat less.
3. There are still giant plastic bowls filled with M&M's at every turn, but switching to opaque bowls resulted in employees eating less.
4. The food in the buffet is labeled with color-coded labels. Healthy foods have signs on green to give you the go ahead, and desserts are labeled with red to eat with caution.Would you want to add some of these tricks to your weight management routine?
