Dubai Offers a Golden Reason to Lose Weight

Dubai, the city of extravagance and luxury, has found a novel way to keep a tab on their residents (over) weight. During the month of Ramadan, the Dubai authorities are offering gold in return, for every gram of weight lost.
The "Your Weight in Gold" program, which last for the next 30 days coincides with Ramadan, the month of fasting. Since Friday, registered participants from different parts of Dubai have started being active and eating a balanced diet in a bid to lose at least two kilograms of weight (4.4 pounds), for which they will receive one gram of gold for each kilogram lost. The final weigh-in will take place on August 16 at the end of the holy month of Ramadan. Three people who lose most weight will be awarded a gold coin worth more a $4,500 through a lucky draw.

Ramadan is the sacred month of fasting, when Muslims refrain from eating and drinking during daylight hours. Many break their fast with too much eating, consuming traditional dishes loaded with fat and sugar. This can result in unexpected increased calorie intake and obvious weight gain even beyond the month of Ramadan.

Hope such a challenge will encourage Dubai residents to lose weight and thus stay away from obesity related illnesses in the long run.
