Money Talks When It Comes to Losing Weight*

by Julie on March 17, 2015

That’s Why the Biggest Loser Contest Works!

Join us for the Biggest Loser Contest. You will get caliper measurements, weekly weigh-ins and nutritional support meetings. Meeting topics will include solving the mystery of whole grains; water, how much and how often; how to prepare today’s superfoods (and what they are and are not); how to navigate the grocery store, and more!

The Mayo Clinic Article

According to Mayo Clinic research that was presented at the American College of Cardiology’s 62nd Annual Scientific Session:

  1. Weight loss study participants who received financial incentives were more likely to stick with a weight loss program than those who received no incentives.
  2. Study participants in the incentive group lost an average of 9.08 lbs., as compared to 2.34 lbs. in the non-incentive group. That’s a significant difference.
  3. Participants in the incentive groups who met their goals received $20 per month, while those who failed to meet their targets paid $20 each month into a bonus pool. Participants in both incentive groups who completed the study were eligible to win the pool by lottery.

Researchers found that even participants in the incentive group who paid penalties were more likely to continue their participation in the study than those in the non-incentive groups, Dr. Driver says.

Extra weight contributes to many conditions, such as heart disease and diabetes.

“Traditional therapies are not working for a lot of people, so people are looking for creative ways to help people lose weight and keep it off,” Dr. Hensrud says. “The results of this study show the potential of financial incentives.”
