Want to lose weight? Surf the net

According to research, visiting a Website that is interactive can actually help you shed those extra pounds.

Lead researcher Kristine L. Funk of the Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research in Portland, Oregon, said that people lost more weight by using a web-based records keeping resource for about two-and-a-half-years at least once a month as compared to people who did not visit such Websites.

About 348 people were followed for making observations for the study and these were those people who lost weight using Web-based method. They were able to keep off about five pounds after logging once a month.

Funk said, "Consistency and accountability are essential in any weight maintenance program. The unique part of this intervention was that it was available on the Internet, whenever and wherever people wanted to use it."

Co-author Dr. Victor J. Stevens added that it was more difficult to keep the lost weight from coming back when compared to just losing weight. In the study people were able to keep their weight off and this is really good.
