Participants needed for nutrition research study on dietary assessment and weight

From: Department of Human Nutrition, Foods, and Exercise

Are you interested in helping researchers better measure dietary intake in participants of varying body size?

Participants are needed for a study (IRB #21-588) seeking to understand how weight can affect measurements of dietary intake. You will complete three phone dietary recalls over a two-week period, attend one in-person study visit in Roanoke, Virginia, where height, weight, and energy expenditure will be measured, complete a questionnaire asking about feelings about weight and body size, and participate in a Zoom interview about your experiences. 

To be eligible, you must be over 18, have a body mass index ≥25, and not be following a weight control diet. If you are interested in participating, complete this screening survey ( ) or contact Erica Howes at
