"Are you really going to eat that?"; magazine launches mobile diet reminder

Self magazine is launching a new text-based diet program for mobile devices which reminds users to eat healthy, drink water and exercise, according to a story from MediaDailyNews. The Self Diet Tapper costs $0.10 a day and delivers five daily reminders about calorie goals, "hydration reminders" and a daily cardio plan with the goal of losing up to two pounds a week. Research has apparently shown that reminders allow users to lose five times the weight of people who aren't reminded.
Self editor in chief Lucy Danziger explained the Diet Tapper is "like getting a gentle reminder tap on the shoulder from your healthiest girlfriend, but in this case, she's a registered dietitian or a fitness trainer."
