Get motivated to lose weight with cash incentives


Get motivated to lose weight with cash incentives.It seems that offering people cash incentives to lose weight, actually motivates them to do so.

A new study has shown that money does play a role in pushing people to lose weight and surprisingly it didn’t have to be an exorbitant amount!

According to research, presented at the annual meeting of the American College of Cardiology, receiving only about R160 per month for shedding 1.81 kilograms (or handing over R160 for not losing the weight), proved adequate enough for people to commit to a weight loss program.

When researchers at another study, in Southeast Missouri State University divided office staff into teams for a 12-week diet challenge and incentivised the winners with cash prizes, participants were shown to have lost an average 3.63 kilograms.

Dr. Steven Driver, physician the Mayo Clinic said it wasn’t about ‘getting rich’, but rather about ‘being held accountable’ that increased people’s drive to lose weight.

It seems that this strategy may be useful for short term weight loss but for weight loss maintenance or for those who require a longer term weight loss, other strategies need to be put in place.

Ultimately, dietary changes as well as adopting an exercise regime is detrimental, so if you are one of those people who are looking for a long term weight loss plan seek assistance from your doctor, a dietician and a fitness instructor.
