Online Intervention Does Not Seem To Help Adolescent Bodyweight Control

Say it ain't so.
An online computer-tailored intervention for adolescents which focuses on reducing inactivity and sedentary behavior, raising physical activity, and promoting good eating habits was found not be effective in the long-term, researchers from Erasmus University Medical Center, the Netherlands reported in the journal Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine. Called the FATaintPHAT intervention, it may have short-term benefits in improving eating behaviors, the authors added.
Another stupid idea that proved itself to be stupid because researchers were too stupid to realize how stupid it was.
