Why Weight Loss Contests Work

It’s really quite simple: money motivates! Leading academic research* shows that the chance to win money enhances weight loss success, making dieters up to five times more likely to lose weight.

HealthyWage uses cash-based weight-loss challenges designed to help end procrastination, encourage perseverance, and harness the power of your desire to avoid losing your wager.
