People participating in a weight loss study who received financial incentives were more likely to stick with the program and lose more weight than study participants who received no incentives. Mayo Clinic internal medicine resident and lead author Steven Driver, M.D., says, “The take-home message is that sustained weight loss can be achieved by financial incentives. The financial incentives can improve results, compliance and adherence.”
Findings will be presented Saturday, March 9 at the American College of Cardiology’s 62nd Annual Scientific Session. Click here for news release.
