Miriam Hospital study shows social gaming site effective weight loss tool
Date:2/18/2014

ng social networks around weight loss, websites like DietBet.com may provide a convenient, cost-effective solution to people who need to lose weight.

"Research evaluating the effectiveness of web-based weight-loss programs is rare," Leahey adds, "and this study could help consumers lose weight together as part of a web-based community."

"This study backs up in a scientific way what we've been seeing all along, which is that players in our DietBet game get meaningful motivation and support from a combination of competition, collaboration, and financial incentives," said Jamie Rosen, DietBetter's founder and CEO. "Plus, it's a lot of fun."
