Weight Loss & Metabolism

  • Fit After Baby – Randomized controlled trial of a mobile health intervention to increase postpartum weight loss in women at increased risk for cardiometabolic disease
  • Intermittent Fasting Study – Volunteers needed for a research study to learn more about the best eating patterns for weight loss within a 12 month behavioral weight loss program.
  • Time Restricted Feeding as a Weight Loss intervention – Volunteers needed for a weight loss research study that plans to examine the effects of time restricted feeding (eating during a 10-hour window of time during the day) on weight loss success.
  • Metabolic predictors of weight loss maintenance – Research volunteers are needed for a 1 year research study looking at your body’s response to dietary changes after completing a weight loss program.
  • Reverse Diet Weight Loss Maintenance Study –  Recently lost weight? Looking for help keeping it off? This study is examining how a “reverse diet” (slowly increasing energy intake from dieting level intake) influences metabolic rate during weight loss maintenance.
  • Do you or someone you know have Type 2 Diabetes? Interested in participating in a weight loss class at no cost? – The CU Anschutz Health and Wellness Center is seeking volunteers with Type 2 Diabetes for a weight loss
    research study looking at the role of dietary protein in weight loss and the remission of type 2 diabetes. The
    study will last approximately 12 months. Participants will participate in a 16 week State of Slim group weight
    loss program and a 36 week State of Slim Next Steps weight loss maintenance program and receive body
    composition scans and lab work at no cost. Participants will receive monetary stipends that total $300 for time
    and travel to classes and study visits.

Physical Activity & Inactivity

  • The B.U.R.S.T. Research Study – This research study plans to learn more about how short, frequent periods of physical activity affect your health.
  • Resistance Exercise Research Study – Volunteers needed for a research study that will examine how resistance exercise influences measures of appetite regulation
  • Enhanced Lifestyles for Metabolic Syndrome – Volunteers with Metabolic Syndrome (defined as having at least 3 of the following symptoms: a BMI above 25, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, high triglycerides, and low HDL cholesterol) needed to participate in a 2 year lifestyle study. Participants will learn how to reduce stress, improve their diet, and increase physical activity.
