PROVEN cost-effective ways to fight obesity?! There are many different types of support systems out there, but how many are asaccessible as those that are on the internet According to Research:- The connections and social ties a person has influence behavior. "A persons chances of becoming obeseincreased by 57% if he or she had a friend who became obese in a given interval." Thus surrounding oneselfaround people with similar ambitions, for instance ambitions to end the cycle of obesity and promoting healthyhabits, will in turn lead to a higher likelihood that these behaviors are implemented. (Christakis, 2007)- In an study attempting to find the most effective form of support intervention targeting weight loss, social networking support interventions were compared to the effect of a control intervention. The results foundthat "social networking services may result in a modest yet significant reduction in BMI in obese and overweight people."
