Anatomy of A Slim by Design Corporate Nutrition Makeover
Our workplace nutrition makeovers are based on the research and work of Dr. Brian Wansink. These methods focus on the principles of behavior economics focusing on why people eat what they do. Resulting efforts are targeted towards making the healthy choice normal, attractive, and the most desirable.
Dr. Wansink has written over 200 research articles and his work has been featured on Oprah, The Dr. Oz Show, Huffington Post, O-Magazine, and the CBS Morning Show.
Our “secret sauce” includes in-depth scorecard assessment and consultations performed by Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs)—the nutrition experts! RDNs are the ideal professional to address the food environment due to their extensive training and background in all facets of nutrition, which also includes food service management and behavior change theory and everything in-between!
