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 with either healthy weight or unhealthy weight (BMI>30).

All participants will complete online questionnaires/tasks now and then a shorter version 6 months later.
Some people with weight issues may be offered online support groups and new psychoeducation materials around weight and improving social connection.
