Earn a $10 VISA gift card by participating in an online survey about the “college weight gain experience.” Research has demonstrated that college students are particularly vulnerable to weight gain, so preventing weight gain in this population may have important implications for long-term weight management. More research is needed to determine why college students are gaining weight in order to develop targeted interventions to forestall weight gain and improve health behaviors. The proposed study aims to investigate the factors perceived by college students related to college weight gain. Information gained from this study would be used to formulate a research plan for funding for college weight gain prevention. Exclusions to the study include: • current college athletes and students diagnosed, within the past year, with depression or an eating disorder • must be a fulltime, non-transfer, undergraduate UAB students ages 18-25.
