The Doctors share the story of a father who reportedly paid his daughter to lose weight. Is this approach to weight loss innovative or possibly harmful?
In an online post, the man said he paid his 22-year-old child $15 dollars an hour to work out, explaining he used this approach out of concern, but his wife called the approach "disgusting." The dad received a slew of criticism online, and 48 percent of our audience felt this was not a good way to help someone lose weight.
Can money be a helpful motivation tool when it comes to health and weight loss? The Doctors discuss, noting it can help people achieve a goal, but worry it could end up having negative longterm consequences.
They feel this type of reward system is more appropriate for a child and not an adult. Instead of paying her by the hour to exercise, they feel a better solution might be for the dad to pay for her gym membership and encourage bettering his daughter's overall health.
