Smartphones, tablets, laptops and other gadgets are all devices we use on a regular basis. You likely even have one of these devices on you at all times. Is it possible that the same device you use to talk to friends, keep track of meetings, play games and check the scores to your favorite sports team could help you in fight of the battle of the bulge? If you have a Twitter application and a Twitter account, you may just be able to help yourself shed some unwanted pounds.
According to research conducted by the University of Arizona, women who reveal health, fitness and nutrition victories on a weekly basis are more likely to shape-up faster than those who keep their victories to themselves. Research also indicates that one in three Americans are currently using social media sites to aim in the weight loss process. With many of these sites being free, the University of Arizona indicates that going viral with your weight loss goals can help you achieve your goals without breaking the bank. The University of Arizona encourages these types of programs to help men and women stay on track with their fitness goals.
