How can participation benefit you?


The clinic visits will provide all participants with valuable information regarding their personal health. Participants will be given the following results at the end of the study:

  • Body composition (including total body fat, lean mass, and bone density)
  • Blood glucose levels
  • Resting blood pressure
  • Fitness assessments
  • Diet assessments
  • Bone health outcomes

Participants should have a better understanding of their bodies and personal health as a result of clinic visits and various assessments.

Though timing of these benefits will differ, all participants will further benefit from:

  • An in-home internet based eating and exercise program
  • Improved health and psychological well-being if the healthier habits continue long term
