RISE (Research Intervention to Support healthy Eating and exercise). The RISE study is testing new ways to help people lose weight. If you join, you get a free weight loss app, your own weight loss coach, daily text messages, and $200 or more for study activities. To see if you can join, click here.
CHAMPs (Coach-delivered Health behavior and Activity Management Program). CHAMPs is examining novel strategies for long-term weight control. Individuals who join CHAMPs will be given access to a free Internet behavioral weight loss program. Those who lose at least 5% of their initial body weight during the program will then be invited to participate in a weight loss maintenance trial. Individuals in the maintenance trial will be randomized to either a traditional weight loss maintenance program or to an enhanced program that involves novel social support strategies. There is no cost to participate. For more information, click here.
PACE (Physical Activity Choices Everyday). PACE is testing new strategies for weight management and physical activity promotion. PACE participants will be given access to a free 4-month internet behavioral weight loss program. Those who lose at least 5% of their initial body weight during the program will be eligible to participate in a 4-month weight loss maintenance trial. Individuals in the maintenance trial will receive a traditional group-based weight loss maintenance program and use a mobile app to do brief daily activities to help reach diet and exercise goals. There is no cost to participate. For more information, click here.
