The participants, ages 18-63 with a body mass index (BMI) of 30-39.9 kg/m2 were assigned to one of four weight loss groups – two without positive incentives, and two with an opportunity to earn $20 in each month they met a goal of a 4 pound weight loss. Over the year, the results were significant:  62 percent study completion in the incentive groups vs. 26 percent in the non-incentive groups.
