    Slim down your body, fatten your piggy bank

    Would you be more inspired if your boss offered you cash for losing 10 pounds?

    USA Today Article

    One blurb I found interesting:
    But some people's price may be higher than others. In one study, he and colleagues offered teens a small amount of money for keeping a food diary and losing weight, but the researchers couldn't pay the kids enough to inspire them. "Kids today have so much spending money that we couldn't compete," Wadden says.

    I think that it could motivate some people. Not all will be motivated with money to lose weight. I've thought that if we just paid ourselves from our own account would be a good idea. Basically it comes out to $5. a pound. ( 20 lbs in 3 months for $100). If we would eat less, money alone could be saved there.

      as a former business owner, I see the benefits of paying employees to be healthy, at least through incentives. Higher raises, more vacation time, first consideration for promotion, etc, as it helps keep health insurance costs down, lost work time due to sickness, etc.
