Local Reebok employees who enjoy consuming white bread, pasta, and soda are going to have to start packing a lunch.

This week, the athletic footwear and apparel company eliminated all foods deemed bad for you from its Canton headquarters in an effort to encourage healthy eating among workers, The Boston Globe reports.

Reebok International Ltd. banned foods like large candy bars and fried foods shortly after sponsoring CrossFit, a fitness program that involves aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, and rowing.

Many CrossFit members also follow the “Paleo diet,” which includes a low-sugar, low-starch regimen.

Reebok told the Globe this doesn’t mean a total ban on unhealthy foods; workers just have to bring them from home. Meanwhile, employees will find their cafeteria’s junk food replaced with healthy snacks like vegetables, fruit, and nuts.
