Digital Technology Helps Fight Obesity

A recent review published in the journal Obesity shows that controlling weight, exercise and diet using digital tools can help people get rid of excess pounds.

Data from 39 scientific papers were included in the analysis. People with obesity participated in the study. They used electronic self-monitoring tools such as websites, apps, wearable devices or electronic weight loss scales for three months or more.

Such interventions appeared to be associated with weight loss in the short term. However, the positive trend waned over time. This suggests that controlling physiological indicators related to weight loss may be less effective over time. This is most likely due to the fact that a person may lose interest in the process, or weight loss slows down over time with the same amount of effort.

Nevertheless, the study authors recommend using electronic weight loss self-monitors to track your progress. This practice promotes a more responsible attitude toward your health and is sure to help you on your way to a trim and athletic figure.
