Why virtual weight loss programs could lead to better health habits | SmartPlanet:
"We asked the question: Can you deliver a weight loss program through [a 3D virtual] environment that is at least as effective as a real world, face-to-face environment?
We had a group in the traditional face-to-face program. We compared them to two groups that were in the virtual program [Club One Island]. The program runs over 12 weeks. We did baseline measures of their bio-metrics and their behavioral perception. We did post-measures at the end of the program and collected other data along the way."
