Researchers from The Marine Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island have made an interesting discovery about social gaming sites aiding weight loss. DietBet is an online commercial weight loss program which combines social influence with a financial incentive, thus resulting in weight loss reports the Times Live on 21st February 2014 (http://www.timeslive.co.za/lifestyle/2014/02/21/social-gaming-can-be-effective-weight-loss-tool-study).

Tricia Leahey. Ph.D and her team at The Miriam Hospital Weight Control and Diabetes research centre noted, “Research evaluating the effectiveness of web-based weight-loss programs is rare and this study could help consumers lose weight together as part of a web-based community.”

DietBet is an online site where participants join weight loss games, whilst placing bets on themselves. As a result, players have a month to lose four percent of current weight. For people who ‘win’ the game, the bet money is split. In order to win, participants must log in the progress by sending weigh-in photos.

Weightmasters comment; "Depite the financial incentive in losing weight, DietBet may be a successful solution to aiding in weight loss, but the idea of placing bets seems to branch towards gambling. This idea of gambling can produce an unhealthy obsession to those joining the service, particularly the younger participants.”
