Future Weight Loss Apps May Be More Effective
While some people find success on current weight loss apps, few are scientifically proven to be beneficial. Very few have gone through any scientific testing, and those that have been tested performed poorly without the support of a health coach or dietician. However, next generation weight loss apps are expected to be more promising.
Future weight loss apps are expected to be more successful because they teach users skills that they need to both lose weight and to keep it off. These science-based systems will also include self-monitoring and a way for members to get support when they need it. The hope is that these new features will increase motivation and keep patients on track to reach their weight loss goals.
