After one year, as we recently reported in the journal Health Affairs, employees randomly assigned to a control group that received no financial incentive had no change in their weight. But employees who were offered a $550 premium reduction didn’t lose weight either. One reason that these rewards were ineffective was that they were provided too far in the future. If you lose weight today you may not receive any reward until next year. Next year is a long way off, particularly if there is a cookie in front of you right now. (Some methods work better -- see article.)

Within the next 10 or 20 years you are almost certain to get diabetes or heart disease - or both. " While 60 percent of heart attacks amongst Americans occur after age 55, nearly half of all heart attacks among Indian men strike under the age of 55 and 25 percent under the age of 40. Indian women share these high rates of heart disease. Thousands of Indian American men in their 40s and 50s succumb to a first, fatal heart attack every year.

One of the stupidest things I have ever read. Who will win the outrage olympics? Hint: 99.9999% of people who use the word "trigger" are not worth listening to about their perceived offenses. "A senior thesis project introducing new color-coded labeling in some dining halls has raised concerns among some undergraduates who said that the system may cause additional eating-related stress." "“Even among students with normal eating habits, they might feel guilt about taking ‘red’ foods,” Corrigan said. “For students who have eating concerns or who have recovered from eating concerns, seeing foods labeled as red could be potentially very triggering.”
