The following details my social media experiment to lose weight.
PROBLEM: I am too fat.
HYPOTHESIS: I can lose weight via a combination of E-Health home monitoring technology and positive and routine input from my social media communities.
EXPERIMENT DESIGN: I will use a web enabled scale to automatically populate my weight to the Internet. Additionally I will elicit support from the Internet via Facebook and Twitter.
In order to begin a weight loss process, I will change certain food intakes: No Aspertame, limited high fructose corn syrup, no chocolate, limit daily food intake to 2,600 calories maximum.
In order to initiate a healthier metabolism, I will change the way I move: 2x 15 minute walks per day, 20-30 minutes of sustained exercise per day.
In order to maintain committed to the weight loss process and keep a positive state of mind, I will interact with multiple people via social media outlets: via Twitter and Facebook, via HealthTechnica.com updates
(I ask that readers of HealthTechnica.com leave comments of suggestion and support on this page, and interact via Twitter and Facebook).
DATA COLLECTION: Data will be collected and displayed on this page via multiple widgets for all to see.
APPLICATION: Application will be shared with others for use by individuals that believe they can benefit from a non-tradition weight management method. Data will be shared openly to anyone looking to apply this concept to an E-Health strategy or Patient Centered Medical Home model.
