(NECN) - Technology has enhanced our lives in many ways, but can it help you finally drop the pounds?
We were joined by Dr. Sherry Pagoto from UMass Medical School on a new study shedding light on the weight loss app industry.

She said that there are about 300 weight loss apps out there.

Pagoto goes over a few key apps and takes you through the process and shows you why they work.

She said that even with app help, it all comes down to diet and exercise to lose weight.
