Peer accountability helps with the weight loss process, and now we have possible proof of this: http://www.cnn.com/2011/09/07/health/weight-watchers-lancet/index.html. The people on Weight Watchers were doing the same thing as the other folks, with one difference: weekly meetings that generate peer accountability. This part of what is being simulated through social fitness networks like Fitocracy and Endomondo. Personally, the nag factor of my phone constantly reminding me to keep a meal diary helps me keep up with that. So, if you want a nearly effortless way to lose more weight – get peer accountability. I still have some Fitocracy invites if anyone wants any.
