Turning Virtual Reality into Real Weight Loss


By Molly Clifton

Virtual reality may help real-life weight loss.

A Temple University study had overweight women create a computer model that looked like themselves.

The women watched videos of their models walking on a treadmill or selecting the right portion sizes.

After four weeks, the women lost three and a half pounds.

Researchers believe if a person can visualize themselves in healthy activities they might learn those behaviors.
