PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Dieters who take photos of themselves in a bikini are more likely to shed pounds according to a new study.
The study from the University of Alicante in Spain says that keeping a photo diary of how you look will keep you motivated to continue dieting.
“What patients want is a photo, rather than cold number,” according to Professor Mercedes Rizo Baeza.
The study examined the motivation levels of 271 patients, 233 of which were women.
The participants took part in a 16-week program, and 90% of the participants lasted until the end.
