Study: Weight Loss Apps Still Aren’t Using Many Established Behavior Change Strategies

One of the first, conducted in 2009, was covered by MobiHealthNews . At the time, we pointed out that this kind of study, which only examines whether apps follow existing protocols to determine how effective their weight loss strategies are, is not actually testing efficacy. The research team also acknowledged this isnt a true efficacy study and that more research must be doneto determine the efficacy of weight-loss mobile apps when they are used in combination with physician advice and monitoring. The published paper includes results from the study of 30 (free and paid) mobile apps found in January 2012 in the Apple App store and Google Play store. The data for the apps was analyzed in June 2012. Some of the apps analyzed included MyNetDiary, Livestrong, Fitbit, LoseIt!, and MyFitnessPal, according to the researchers. Established behavioral strategies that the research team looked for included weight-loss goals, dietary goals, stimulus control, a food pyramid, and portion control.

Healthy living in Lanarkshire with Therapy4Health

Attendees will experience first-hand the welcoming nature of Therapy4Healths team, who take care not to intimidate or bombard with jargon and promise to dispel any myths and mysteries. Since coming together in 2012, the group has run a number of well-attended covering a range of topics relating to holistic medicine, including dealing with anxiety and depression, relieving stress, combatting back pain, reiki, massage and meditation. Therapy4Healths Ann Doherty is a nurse acupuncturist who has worked in the community for 25 years. She felt there was a need for a community-led group that focussed on healthy-living and wellbeing. Lanarkshire has one of the highest levels of chronic ill-health in Scotland, she says, I wanted to do something that contributed to general health improvement. We welcome anyone interested in improving their health to the group. We keep things interesting by using a range of approaches such as group meetings, workshops and complementary therapies, and discuss a wide range of health-related topics. Ann also feels its important to be able to offer those who attend Therapy4Health events the best possible knowledge about health: Were always getting in touch with charities, groups and agencies to learn from the expertise they have to offer. We are very open to working with others and thats partly what this event is about making contacts and connections so we can build up an accurate picture of what kind of health treatments are out there in communities. Ann feels that the group also has a unique social factor that encourages people to come back. People come to the group for a number of reasons, says Ann. Some feel isolated, some are unsure about where to get information and support, others are bewildered by the rapid changes seen by the NHS. Most feel they have found vital forms of social support within the group. The Open Day will be running a How Healthy Are You? workshop with questionnaires on healthy living and activity. Each participant will be given a healthy living score with comments on everyday changes they can make to improve their wellbeing. There will also be blood pressure check-ups complete with expert advice from Blood Pressure UK.
