4) Earn Money!

The Power of Financial Incentives
It's really quite simple, money motivates! Leading academic research shows that money enhances weight loss success, making dieters significantly more likely to lose weight. HealthyWage uses cash-based challenges designed to help end procrastination, encourage perseverance, and harness the power of your desire to avoid losing your wager.
We want you to be successful!
Too Good to Be True?
No, it's not.
HealthyWage makes money from corporate and government clients who are interested in creative solutions to weight loss. In addition, although financial incentives are great weight loss tools, people sometimes are unsuccessful in their weight loss challenge.
The question is: will HealthyWage make money from you, or will you make money from HealthyWage?
