The reasons for the obesity epidemic we are experiencing are various.
As well as the health problems that the condition provides, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, joint problems and stroke.
To combat these problems, food reeducation and increased levels of physical activity are part of the arsenal.
But a study at the University of Southampton (England) may have increased the odds of success by employing computers to the task.
Previous studies have proven the effectiveness of intensive behavioral counseling for obese people in weight loss.
Now British researchers have conducted tests where this advice was given online through a program called POWeR.
With it, participants came into contact with cognitive behavioral techniques designed to provide long-term sustainable means of forming healthy eating habits and exercise.
