We all know it’s rather tough to get motivated to stay healthy and lose weight…well the Dubai municipality has taken it to the next level and has offered the public a rather hard-to-ignore incentive…gold. The ‘Your Weight in Gold’ is aimed at promoting healthy lifestyle and each participant will get one gram of gold for each kilo reduced from his/her body weight.
The month long programme will also crown an overall winner who loses the most weight.
“Aimed at promoting a healthy lifestyle and losing excess body weight, the 30-day weight loss programme will reward the first three winners who lose the most weight with gold equivalent to Dh20,000 each, said Eng Hussain Nasser Lootah, Director General, and senior officials of Dubai Municipality.
“Participants who reduce a minimum of 2kg and above will get one gram of gold for each kilo reduced,’ he added.” [Gulf News]
