Researchers at the Human Nutrition Unit, University of Auckland, led by Prof Sally Poppitt, are looking for women (age between 18 and 65 years old, BMI greater than 30kg/m^2, body weight not more than 130kg, otherwise healthy) to participate in a Weight Loss Study.
We are investigating the differential responses of a high-protein diet and a low-carbohydrate diet in inducing weight loss. You are going to follow a Low-Energy Diet for 8 weeks achieved using partial meal replacements (Cambridge Weight Plan) and receive dietitian supports at no cost.
Participants will be invited to attend 3 clinic visits at the Human Nutrition Unit and attend a fortnightly meeting with a Registered Dietitian who is an expert in using Cambridge meal replacements. The changes in body weight, appetite and body composition (fat mass and fat-free mass) will be assessed.
This research is running between April and November. It is a golden opportunity for those who fit the study criteria to lose weight. We welcome everyone to spread this message.
