OFFICE SNACKS. OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND

Remove the snacks in your office from your eye sight and reaching distance!

In a study done by Brian Wansink, he found that people ate 2.2 more pieces of chocolate when the treats were placed in clear jars vs opaque. Participants also ate 1.8 more pieces when the jar was in reaching distance of their car vs. across the room.

Even with normal portion-control meals, mindless snacking at the office can add hundreds of calories to your intake and may be the culprit of your weight gain. It’s also easy to forget about these snacks, so we don’t compensate by eating less at the next meal.
