To lose weight is that -- the -- Hey show me the money or -- kill me.
Is that what we have never mind I would tell people lose weight because you gonna die -- but now all that's not good enough.
Diet is not good enough apparently about dying does not high dollar -- -- keep right -- finding that motivates people even more.
There -- several scientific studies now that shadow.
That if we pay people they're actually going to lose more weight.
