Change Your Work-Place and Keep the Weight Off

I found this kind of interesting.   Apparently, a study was done showing that some simple changes at the work-place can keep employees from gaining weight (although nobody lost weight.)  Here's what the article had to say:

The researchers report on the impact of environmental interventions at several Dow Chemical Company worksites. They found that simple, low-cost interventions — for example, encouraging workers to take the stairs and making healthy options available in vending machines — helped to avoid employee weight gain.

Getting rid of junk food and encouraging people to just move a little more?  Makes sense to me. 

And, as I always say, just not gaining weight is half the battle of losing weight.
