Abstract: Statistics Canada in 2010 states that over 4.5 million people were overweight or obese.The dramatic increase in obesity and its correlation with serious diseases has caused the World Health Organization (WHO) to declare an immediate need for effective and widely-accessible intervention. Cellular phone devices are portable, convenient, and popular among people of varying economic status and ethnicities, rendering this an ideal medium for a lifestyle intervention.
