Virtual reality may help real-life weight loss.
A Temple University study had overweight women create a computer model that looked like themselves.
The women watched videos of their models walking on a treadmill or selecting the right portion sizes.
After 4 weeks, the women lost 3 and a half pounds.
Researchers believe if a person can visualize themselves in healthy activities they might learn those behaviors.
