posted by jrod - 

New research shows texting supportive messages can help some people lose weight. Dr. Ashwani Singal led the study at the University of Alabama. Researchers studied obese patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, dividing them into two groups. Both got instructions on healthy dieting and exercise but the second group also got three text messages a week, reinforcing medical advice.

After six months, patients in the texting group had lost an average of eleven pounds, compared to two pounds for those in the standard group.
