Celebrity Sherri Shepherd is at it again, leveraging her celebrity power while losing weight, getting fit and healthy coupled with effectiveness of financial incentives and expert support to spur extraordinary success among those dieting-for-dollars through the program.

 

She's also motivating America to do the same, as Sherri—an actress, comedian and best-selling author who formerly served as an Emmy Award-winning network talk television co-host—recently kicked off her second A-list partnership with HealthyWage—the world's leading purveyor of financially-induced diet contests for individuals and corporate/team-based weight loss challenges.

Amid the popularity of Sherri Shepherd's initial "HealthyWager" initiative through which participants vied to win up to $10,000 by hitting their own personal weight loss goal, the esteemed television personality has again teamed with HealthyWage for a re-boot of the initiative ... again giving participants a chance to win up to $10,000 by hitting their own personal weight loss goal.

As an added bonus and point of motivation, those partaking in Sherri Shepherd's HealthyWager challenge will also receive a $50 cash bonus added to their grand prize. Sherri's own goal is to lose 15 pounds in 6-months for which she will win $500. Interested parties may learn more and enroll in the challenge, which runs through June 18, 2021, online at www.healthywage.com/sherri.

"HealthyWage is actually making weight loss fun," says Sherri Shepherd about the partnership and program at large. "Someone is going to pay me to lose weight?  That's a lot of fun for me. Accountability is so important to any weight loss goal. Going into 2021, I want to get my focus back on my health, and I just needed some incentive, so I am excited to partner up again with HealthyWage.

The fun part is finding out how much you can win for hitting your goal...it's the ultimate secret in motivation! HealthyWage is not a fad diet and will actually change the way you look at weight loss. There's no better kick start to your 2021 resolutions than a HealthyWager!"   

HealthyWage is founded on research and "double-incentivization" methodology that proves cash rewards triple the effectiveness of weight loss programs. As case-in-point, HealthyWage payouts are proof positive. For their weight-loss achievements that collectively exceeds an astounding 1,050,000 pounds for this year, alone—269 of which losing in excess of 100 pounds (and nearly 7.5 million pounds lost since the company's launch), HealthyWage has reportedly paid more than 30,000 dieters over $13 million cash in 2020, specifically, and over $55 million cash since its inception in 2009.

"Studies show that monetary incentives serve to enhance the effectiveness of, and duly complement, weight-loss programs of any and all sorts, especially when paid out quickly like our various programs," said HealthyWage co-founder David Roddenberry. "The average participant more than doubles their investment if they are successful at achieving their goal. The financial upside potential is impressive."

The efficacy of diet gamification is well-proven. For one, according to study findings published by JAMA Internal Medicine, behavioral economics-based gamification led to "significantly" increased physical activity among overweight and obese Americans.

In this particular study, pairing a step tracking device with social incentives led to sustained, long-term behavior change—prompting participants to take more steps then with a step tracking device, alone. While the report explains that "gamification interventions significantly increased physical activity during the 24-week intervention," with competition being the "most effective."

Further validating HealthyWage's well-honed approach, an additional study published in the journal Social Science and Medicine continue to prove that money is an effective motivator to "increase both the magnitude and duration of weight loss." The same hold true in business for staff wellness initiatives. Results from one study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine indicated that "Loss Incentive' Motivates Employees to Take More Steps," finding that financial incentives framed as a loss were most effective for achieving physical activity goals.

"Throngs of studies reiterate the importance of the 'stick' in the design of a wellness incentive program, whether for individuals at home or for employee groups," Roddenberry says. "Many studies have demonstrated that the threat of losing something of value is much more effective than the opportunity to win something of equal value. That's precisely why we advocate that program participants 'pay to play' and make an investment out of their own pocket in order to win rewards—in our case large cash prizes—for losing weight and getting more active in the program."

As a prolific corporate and group wellness purveyor, since 2009 HealthyWage has worked with an array of hi-caliber participants on workplace and staff wellness initiatives, including Halliburton, ConocoPhillips and more than 25% of the largest school districts in the country.

HealthyWage has, in fact, formally created competitive, money-motivated programs for more than 1000 Fortune 500 and other public and private companies, hospitals, health systems, insurers, school systems, municipal governments and other organizations throughout the U.S., and their program has been more informally run at more than 7,000 companies and organizations seeking to bolster staff health and well-being, and boost bottom lines in kind.
