Nah, more just incentive to eat crappy cheap food. It's not like less expensive places give you less food.

I usually end up drinking what I would pocket as excess so not really saving calories.

Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels

I've noticed it also discourages social outings (at least compared to expensing)

Or the the very least to eat cheap crap food.

I feel no incentive. Grub hub every night.

At a former company, they let you expense $20 for working 10+ hours in a day, but you could never use it because it would always be rejected. Recently started at a new firm, and I had a rough week last week (two 14+ hour days). New firm has a similar policy, so I asked. Was told not to submit the $20 reimbursements. Just as I was about to get frustrated, he told me I should get dinner for my wife and me. Only rule was to keep it under $100. Don't like working 14 hour days, but this was nice.
