How fast does food disappear at work?

We are a large medical office full of health conscious eaters and exercisers. Seriously, at lunch you see yogurts, salads, whole grain pastas, hummus, roasted veggies etc. People talk about how far rhey ran and when they are going to the gym and you can tell they are not making it up.

But if someone brings in goodies ie brownies or biscotti to name recent offerings, it disappears immediately. All you find is the empty plate with crumbs or the empty container which is never thrown away. We actually found an empty pizza box in the fridge.

Is the empty plate/container phenomenon as universal as the vanishing treats?
