Consuming super foods, exercising daily and enough sleep can produce maximum weight loss results. Tracking the entire scene with any fitness or relevant application should be like a cherry on top. Bonnie Spring headed a weight loss research study published recently. The preventive medicine professor is associated with North-western University Feinberg School of Medicine. Sixty nine fat overweight people were tracked by the research conductors. They were studied on the basis of their personal weight loss journey undergone for almost a full year. Patients were enrolled into a program directed by standard physician. These participants were divided into two different groups. The people of control group participated in health awareness sessions. They went there without using private digital assistants for monitoring diet figures and physical activities regularly.
On the other hand, those who were part of +mobile group were found to lose more weight constantly throughout the course of study. Tech related support users including men and women were more dedicated to biweekly subscription MOVE sessions accompanying the physicians or dieticians. The patients taking the assistance of apps on an average lost up to 15 pounds. They were all able to continuously maintain this weight loss for an entire year to say the least. All those participants listed out of the ‘+mobile group’ on an average lost up to 8.6 pounds individually. It shows how these calorie count apps can take weight loss to entirely a different level.
At the same time, the above exposes certain loopholes in the medication industry. These are related particularly to tracking the treatment meted out to obesity patients. The doctors in the recent times who are a part of health and medical industry aren’t equipped enough. According to Bonnie Spring, these people have no time, training and right resources for tracking and treatment of weight loss patients. He is of the view that the aforementioned approach enables the patients to rely on their own self. It helps them almost every day. Spring maintains that people can be helped in losing substantial amount of body weight and maintain it. In order to achieve this, they should take active interest and engage into tracking their personal eating and physical activities. They should find out how it affects their body weight and can rely on some social support afterwards.
The research study conducted reveals a lot of things which otherwise could have remained unanswered. First and foremost, it reveals that classes offer the much needed social support to the patients. It also says how they are able to grasp enough knowledge for shedding the undesired excessive kilos. On a different note, the gadgets and mobile applications such as My Fitness Pal, FitBit, Nike + Fuelband and PlayMate for iPad are also helpful. These apps or gadgets leads to empowerment of patients. They are able to access some useful and insightful mobile data. Weight loss isn’t as hard as it may be estimated by some. With dedication and cautious approach, it is simple and easy to follow.
