Avatars May Help People Lose Weight!

avatarThis story is pretty funny and interesting. This story is about losing weight which is good because it can help prevent diabetes, hypertension and other health complications that can cause you to lose your vision to cataracts and glaucoma. This is why you need yearly eye exams.

Reports show that according to a new study published in the Journal of Diabetes, Science and Technology is watching our e-tech and pixel-tech world. Watching an avatar exercise and learn healthy habits in the virtual world may help people lose weight in real life. Women in the study “lost an average of 3.5 pounds over four weeks,” and while that is a typical weight loss using traditional exercise plans, “virtual reality systems could provide an inexpensive way for overweight men and women to learn the skills and behaviors needed to lose weight and keep it off.” “This pilot study showed that you don’t have to be a gamer to use virtual reality to learn some important skills for weight loss,” and that the study “suggests that virtual reality could be a promising new tool for building healthier habits.” The implementation of those who wanted to explore showed that all participants lost up to 10% of their body weight.
