Researchers are testing a new weight loss program focused on the impact of brain activity and eating habits. Your involvement may lead to you losing weight.
Healthy eating is essential for memory, mood, and focus — the brain uses more than 20% of our caloric needs. Having overweight or obesity may impact brain activity. Since higher BMI is linked to decreased cerebral blood flow, when a person's weight goes up, activity and blood flow may go down in certain regions of the brain.
Researchers at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) in Phoenix want to see whether increases in brain activity will change eating patterns and lead to weight loss. Join our researchers in finding new treatments to help adults struggling with obesity.
