Text Message System Can Help People Lose Weight
Stoke-on-Trent wants to help its residents slim down with friendly reminders.
Roughly 70,000 adults in the city of Stoke-on-Trent are classed as obese, which costs the local NHS around $81 million a year trying to treat weight-related illness. The city council wants to try a cheaper approach, and send obese residents motivational messages such as “Use the stairs more”, “Eat fruit and veg” and “Keep a check on snacks and drinks.”
