E-Coaching for Weight LossInternational Journal of Business, Humanities, and Technology (2014)
The obesity epidemic continues to be a major problem with no clear end in sight. Health professionals and public health experts must look for innovative ways to prevent further increases of obesity. Using technology could be one way to solve this problem through the use of e-coaching. E-coaching is a way to offer personal coaching, or support, in an electronic manner that is also cost effective. The purpose of this study is to research the effects of the e-coaching system as a valuable weight loss method. Clients participating in an e-coaching program for weight loss showed a reduction in weight and waist circumference, as well as an overall shift in BMI. E-coaching could be an effective method of achieving weight loss as participants had modest weight loss and reduced their waist circumference.
