How does social behaviour relate to how we eat? (Online Study)

01 May 2020

We are investigating how the way we interact with others may be related to eating behaviours. We are looking for participants who struggle with their weight (BMI>30).

All participants will complete online questionnaires/tasks now and then a shorter version 3 months later.
Then participants will be offered online support groups aimed at improving wellbeing and social connection, and also a new eating support App for 6 weeks.
