$$$$ bribery…it can actually help people lose weight. This British program bribed people to lose weight with a monetary reward. The average participants in the study lost 8.8 pounds to earn $360. What’s you price?
The program was controversial but it did seem to work. Half of the participants in the program lost at least 5% of their body weight. Losing that percentage reduces many health risks. The way I see it, weight loss is such a struggle for many people, if bribing them helps, it’s OK by me. It could save health care costs in the future.
