Almost half of Americans are overweight or obese. It is well known that in order to lose the weight they need to modify their diet and increase their physical activity. However, many have not been properly educated or do not have the proper tools to achieve this goal. Face-to-face programs such as Weight Watchers have been proven effective for long term weight management however many people can not afford this program or would prefer a more private setting. In this age of technology, increased internet access and smart phones can be a valuable tool to provide education and support for these patients.
