We make huge strides when pitted against each other, since winning innately feels great. MealLogger allows professionals create customized challenges for their more competitive clients, so they can go head-to-head and experience fantastic progress along the way. Create competitions that start out easy and become progressively more challenging one week at a time. A sample challenge for weight loss clients might look like this:

Clients can see where they stand on the scoreboard, and once the competition concludes, prizes can be awarded, either between the participants themselves (i.e. free dinner) or by the trainer/gym (i.e. free training session). The prize should be nominal, nothing fancy, as everyone involved knows that the goal is health- and weight-related, and squaring up against friends and acquaintances can be exciting in and of itself.

To illustrate, check out a recent healthy eating challenge that Sports Dietitian Andrew Pierce ran for the Columbia University Football Team.
