It’s time to do everyone at your work a GIANT favor.
It’s time to get rid of “Cookie Tuesdays” and “Cake Thursdays”
It’s also time to get rid of the “Cookies and treats at every meeting” mentality.
You CAN make it through an hour meeting without needing cookies…
(Besides..conspiracy theorists think the cookies are just there to keep you sedated)
If you are going to win this battle against obesity…then it’s not a war you can only fight at home.
You have to take it to the office too.
And remember, I’m all for eating the foods you love…but it all has to be within the realm of eating less.
You CAN have cake while dieting..just not at every meeting.
Here’s my final thought from back when I worked in an office that was meeting crazy
1. You shouldn’t have to bribe your employees to go to a meeting
2. The meetings shouldn’t be any longer than they need to be…so you really shouldn’t have to nourish your employees.
3. If you have employees who are trying to lose weight, having treats can be just as offensive as NOT having treats. Especially when you employees try to guild trip each other into eating.
4. Eat Stop Eat. There’s a LOT of us out there now (we’re the ones losing all that weight) …we may not tell you, but we might be fasting…so be nice.
