Dietitian Approved Workplace Wellness Nutrition Challenges

Healthy eating challenges for your corporate wellness program

Study after study proves that when employees eat better, they feel better, their overall health is better and their workplace productivity increases. Workplace wellness is a win-win – employees feel better, and companies have a happier workforce, increased productivity and lower health care costs. When people are at their desk and they’re hungry, they tend to grab whatever is easiest and closest – not what is healthiest. Emotional, mindless eating due to stress or tiredness is an easy habit to acquire – and a hard one to break.

But how do you bring healthy eating habits into the workplace – without the social stigma of body size shaming or pressuring employees to participate? To get employee buy-in, let employees organize and manage the challenge – with HR’s support. Usually a challenge that is long enough to create some momentum, is the most likely to succeed. While you may have heard that it takes 21 days to change a habit, research has demonstrated it typically takes 66 days to anchor a new eating, drinking and exercise habit (ranging between 18-254 days). While a 30-day nutrition challenge can get things started, longer challenges will optimally create more long-term results that stick.

3 Keys to Making your Workplace Nutrition Challenge a Success:

Weight Loss Wisdom

A short dietitian reflection about your food choices and your body weight

By Registered Dietitian Lindsay Rieger on our team

Those extra 5-10 lbs – that place where your body naturally wants to be… that’s your life. That’s your late night pizza with friends, your Sunday morning brunch, and your favourite cookies just because you want to treat yourself. Those 5-10 lbs are your favourite memories, the unforgettable trips, and your celebrations of life. They are your spontaneity, your freedom, your love.” Wyn Wiley

So. Much. Yes.

I can’t take personal credit for these words- they popped up randomly on social media a while back however I will say that I absolutely LOVE them.
