Try cutting more “deal breakers” from your diet.

Many of us eat fairly well, but have those one or two things that are keeping us from being as healthy as we could be. Think about this, a Venti Caffe Mocha has 26 grams of fat and 450 calories! Many of us “super size” our fast food meals when we’re already over eating, and according to the National Soft Drink Association, the average American now consumes over 600, 12-ounce servings of soft drinks, per person, per year. Try cutting some of these high calorie, high fat, high sugar items out of your diet.

Corporate Health

Businesses must prioritize if they intend to impact the health of their workforce. Businesses often have an incredibly wide range of employees. They’ll differ in age, race, weight, stress levels, diets, fitness level, etc. In other words, it’s incredibly hard to give information, without knowing whom it’s being given for.

The best thing any manager, executive or owner could do, is to have a health risk assessment done. Scheduling a health risk assessment at the Cooper Aerobics Center would be a great start.

In the meantime, think about this – Many companies often overlook such things as what their employees are consuming at meetings, and what’s served in the cafeteria. Trying to provide fruit at meetings rather than donuts and serving healthier grilled meals over fried foods in the corporate cafeteria could be a quick start to any corporate wellness plan, although much more than this would need to be done.
