Story from the LA Times about a Google employee who’s gained a bit of in-house fame for his reviews of their free gourmet food. He also notes:
He is careful to measure portions and work out regularly at the Google gym. He does that to avoid the dreaded “Google 15” — a reference to the pounds new employees often put on amid unlimited supplies of free grub
Oh god yes. I’d imagine people put on weight like nobody’s business at first. I probably would as I have issues with portion control. Of course maybe if I was eating gourmet food, I’d be satiated quickly and not want to eat until I’m disgustingly full. Somehow I doubt it. Haha, just one more reason for me not to work at Google (not that I could).
