We are inviting you to participate in a survey designed to evaluate the relationship between cognitive style (decision making) and weight loss success.

Many Americans are currently trying or have tried in the past to lose weight. Few of these people can find a diet that they enjoy and that they are able to adhere to. Dietary adherence is one of the main factors that determines success on any given diet.

Dietary adherence is a result of countless decisions related to diet, so this study aims to look at how one's cognitive style (decision making) affects dietary success.

To take part in the study, you will answer questions to determine your cognitive style as well as quetions regarding your past experiences with different types of diets, such as what diets you have tried and how successful you were in losing weight. You may opt to not answer any question and remain in the study.

The one-time questionnaire takes a maximum of 15 minutes. There will be no follow-up or extended participation beyond this one-time questionnaire.

For participating in the study, you will have the option to be entered to win a $50 Amazon Gift Card!
