About this research study:
Researchers hope to better understand differences in how men and women experience hunger and how those differences may impact food consumption.
Our research team is working to better understand how the body responds to food. We also plan to learn more about how hormones and the menstrual cycle affect these responses.

Join our 4-16-week research study and help us understand gender-based differences in eating behaviors! Compensation provided. Learn more today.
