Counseling On Diet, Nutrition In The Workplace Pays Significant Dividends

February 20, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
A pilot study conducted by Tufts University researchers found significant benefits to workplace intervention focused on dietary information and weight loss. Overweight and obese employees who participated in the intervention arm of the trial lost an average of 18 pounds over six months compared to members of the control group who gained an average of two pounds. The researchers said their approach is unique because it involves a “strong behavioral component": counselors trained in nutrition and behavior modification met every two weeks with participants to discuss menu planning, portion control, managing hunger, and dealing with stress-related and emotional eating.
