    “I want to be healthy”

    What gets in the way?

    “I’m confused” “I’m stuffed and starved”

    “healthy doesn’t taste good” “I don’t have time”

    “I deserve this”

    Stressed is desserts spelled

    backwards

    Chocolate is made from cocoa,

    which comes from trees. That makes it a plant. Chocolate is salad!

    3 Bull’s eye targets

    POLL: What is your favorite part of supper?

    A. Carbs - I’m a carb junkie B. Protein - You can call me a meat-atarian C. Veggies - I’m a veggie head D. Dessert - I’m sweet…and have a sweet tooth

    Employees define health & healthy eating

    very differently… Do your nutrition initiatives offer: beginner AND advanced knowledge? diverse ways of accessing info?

    “We like challenges & the latest &

    greatest”

    1. Health Geeks

    Does your wellness program…

    •  Challenge those that are already healthy to stay that way?

    •  Provide some advanced health initiatives (rather than just the basics)?

    •  Leverage healthy employees to inspire others? Expert = Latin for “experience”

    Wellness program planners

    biggest mistake?

    Using logic & facts to educate

    •  Science is a verifier not a justifier! •  Employees decide based on feelings & beliefs Shared values 3-5 X

    more important than competence

    Journal of Rural Sociology, 2009

    Who are the health geeks in your company that can inspire others?

    2. Weight Warriors

    WHO: Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 The Lancet

    Statistics Canada: 2012 Canadian Community Health Survey

    Overweight & Obese Canadians ~60% of adults

    ~32% of kids (age 5-17 years)

    Worldwide Overweight & Obese Rising: Adults: 28% increase since 1980

    Children: 47% increase since 1980

    Weight loss research clearly shows:

    nutrition trumps exercise

    “You can’t burn off a bad diet”

    Many people overestimate how many calories they burn…

    30 min Activity Calories Burned for a 150 lb. person

    Walking 3 mph 113 calories Elliptical 245 calories Running 5 mph 272 calories Stationary Biking 239 calories Swimming 205 calories Weight lifting 153 calories Cleaning house 102 calories Gardening 136 calories

    www.primusweb.com/fitnesspartner/jumpsite/calculat.htm

    We underestimate how much

    we eat by …_____% ≈ 30%

    Does your wellness program… •  Support the research that you may be better

    off to focus more on nutrition than fitness? •  Offer ongoing nutrition support in both group

    & individual learning initiatives? •  Avoid rewarding with food? •  Have a supportive program for catering,

    vending machine & offsite camp choices?

    Biggest loser contests…

    Avoid them!

    •  Weight loss is easy, sustaining is hard •  Weight loss rates vary

    –  gender, age, height, muscle, how overweight someone is etc.

    •  Reward healthy habits not pounds •  Research shows damage

    –  biggest loser programs damage metabolism & weight regain likely
