Hillary and Bruce, who followed a low-fat vegetarian diet in a GEICO worksite study, exemplify how office workers can lose weight, lower blood pressure, and reduce absenteeism if their employer provides healthy low-fat vegetarian meals in the company cafeteria. The findings are published in a new study published in July's American Journal of Health Promotion.

"GEICO's workplace nutrition program helped employees lose weight and reduce blood pressure and cholesterol levels," says Susan Levin, M.S., R.D., an author of the new study. "If a company cafeteria offers low-fat vegetarian options every day, employees' heath improves and they miss less work." Ms. Levin is director of nutrition education for the nonprofit Washington Center for Clinical Research, a subsidiary of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
