How the Buddy System Can Save You
Do you want to lose weight? Then buddy up. Let's face it - the path to wellness is long and daunting. Without a good support system, it's easy to get lost along the way. That's what friends are for.If you want to feel like you aren't alone in your diet endeavors, finding a partner to help you stay on the light track may be just the answer you've been looking for to help keep you motivated. In fact, a study conducted by Brown Medical School and Dartmouth University showed that those dieters who had an exercise buddy who succeeded at weight loss also lost weight themselves. It's simple to understand why diet buddies are so helpful. It's far too easy to blow off your daily exercise regimen. Having a partner who you're committed to will give you accountability, and you'll be less likely to come up with an excuse as to why you can't exercise. When you're in need of someone to boost your motivation, a workout buddy is the ideal candidate. Like any other partner in your life, it's important to choose carefully.
