"In some cases we don't hire smokers, but it's hard not to hire people in America who are overweight, because 69 percent of adults are. We're not discriminating against workers, but we are incentivizing them. Healthier team members get a bigger food discount. We give our sickest team members an option to go through what we call the Total Health Immersion, where we take them off for a week, and we do intensive diet-and-lifestyle education."

— John Mackey, founder and co-CEO of Whole Foods Market, from an interview in The New York Times Magazine.
