How to Lose Weight on a Budget
6. Buddy Up
One of the most powerful resources you have for helping you lose weight—and keep it off—is your social network.

One study found that when friends participated in a group weight-loss program together, they lost more weight—and were more successful in keeping it off—than people who did the same program on their own. And a 2011 study found that when co-workers were put into two groups and competed together for the biggest weight loss, they dropped more weight than people who followed a worksite weight-loss program alone.
