We developed an Internet-based body weight reduction program so called the HALSMA diet Internet version. The Internet server is set in the system by which participants and health professionals can share the data for body weight change. Using this system, we could partly automate monitoring process and then reduce the workload of health professionals. According to the result of 90 days long preliminary trial, the time for administration was reduced from 30 to 5 minutes. This amelioration of monitoring process made it possible to serve to more participants without any erosion of service quality. Furthermore, this system is expected to provide the body weight reduction program to the participants who live in the places far from the health center.
