Studies currently enrolling.
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. To see if you are eligible for CHAMPs, click here.
