Why Weight Loss Is a Social Activity


“I’m doing this for me” is a powerful mantra, but individuality isn’t always a help when it comes to weight loss. According to new research, people are much more successful at losing weight when they’re part of a group.

“I’m doing this for me” is a powerful mantra, but individuality isn’t always a help when it comes to weight loss. According to new research, people are much more successful at losing weight when they’re part of a group.

One study found groups of people given financial incentives lost more weight than individuals with the same goals. In another study, coworkers helped keep each other on track to shed a few pounds [1]. Together, these studies add to an already impressive amount of data suggesting health and fitness could be a more social endeavor.
