Unfortunately, you can’t catch a diet or weight loss from someone the way you can catch a cold. Or can you? A recently study published in the scientific journal Obesity says that loosing weight can have a contagious ripple effect, especially within teams and in a competition.
“We’re all influenced by the people around us, so if we can harness this positive peer pressure and these positive social influences, we can create a social environment to help encourage additional weight loss,” explains Tricia Leahey, PhD, the lead study author of The Miriam Hospital and Alpert Medical School.
Therefore, if you are trying lose weight, and you can’t get on a television program like the Biggest Loser, consider putting together a competition of your own. Ask your employer if you can host a weight loss competition at work or ask your family members to compete with you.
An all natural weight loss supplement may also help boost your ability to shed unwanted pounds. Available at Dr. Newton’s Naturals, Skinny D is formulated to provide the essential vitamins and nutrients your body needs to stay full and focused without overeating.
Weight loss doesn’t have to be difficult, make it fun with a friendly competition and Skinny D.
