About the Project
As we all know, our eating habits and self image have a great deal to do with health and happiness. This study is designed to explore these issues in a large and diverse group of people. Our purpose in conducting this survey is to understand how eating behavior and body image change across the lifespan and influence wellbeing. We hope that you can contribute to this effort. More information on these topics will be provided to you after completing the survey.
