A treasure trove of scientific analysis has been done on how people form habits and how habits can be changed (for better or worse).  If we can find the trigger points for unhealthy eating/living at work, we can use this information to guide change.

Maegan commented on Using habit-forming science to our advantage

Thanks for your note Ashley! I need to reread his section on the workplace in "The Power of Habit" to see his exact thoughts on this from the book. My general sense from his viewpoint is that new habits are easy to create, but extremely difficult to make powerful enough to overcome old/destructive habits. Seems like it is overcoming these old habits that is the real challenge. I'll read more and see what I come up with.

Maegan commented on Workplace Farmer's Market

I love this inspiration. Taking the community nature of farmers markets and bringing that into the workplace could be a very infectious way to spread healthy eating trends in the office. Do you know if there are any companies that offer a service like this that a company can hire to come in on a given day? I know that "Farm Fresh To You" (http://www.farmfreshtoyou.com/index.php?cmd=officedelivery) picks up food from farmers markets and delivers it to customers at their home or office. Perhaps a similar company structure could be used to provide a farmers-market-to-the-office type service where employees could browse and grab different things? Thanks for the idea!
