We are recruiting for a low carb research study

We’re recruiting participants for a research study about low carbohydrate diets.

The study “How low do you need to go? Comparing symptoms of diet induction and mood with outcomes from diets containing differing levels of carbohydrate restriction” seeks to help us understand the effects of differing types of low-carb diets on symptoms of carbohydrate withdrawal (known as ‘Keto-Flu’) and on outcomes from dietary intervention.

We are seeking healthy, non-diabetic people aged between 24 and 49 who are currently seeking weight loss. Please be aware that due to the nature of this study those who are currently, or have previously followed a ketogenic diet may be ineligible and people who are current or former clients of mine or my Secondary Supervisor Caryn Zinn Dietitian are ineligible to participate.

I am Grant Schofield, Professor of Public Health at Auckland University of Technology and director of the university's Human Potential Centre (HPC) located at the Millennium Campus in Auckland, New Zealand. My research and teaching interests are in wellbeing and chronic disease prevention especially reducing the risk and eventual mortality and morbidity from obesity, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. I live by the motto "be the best you can be" and have a strong commitment to peak performance in which I also do consulting work. I’ve been interested in human health and performance for my whole career. I started in psychology, went into sport and exercise psychology, then into public health, especially physical activity, then obesity. There have been some twists and turns along the way, which are the reasons for why I do what I do – you can read about those in my first blog entry. I want to know how we can be the best we can be. This crosses disciplines such as biology, medicine, pubic health, and productivity management. The cornerstones are nutrition, exercise, sleep, neuroscience, psychology and wellbeing. In my blog, I cover these topics under the broad heading of the Science of Human Potential.

  1. Hi Cliff It’s Sophie Percy here – I did the last research with you so I’m not sure if that excludes me from this trial. I’ve certainly not been anywhere close to Keto since then but I do try to stay away from White carbs and sugar.

    Is that excludes me I am gutted but I understand.

    However my husband is definitely not a previous keto person and he is keen to be involved. The problem being he’s just turned 50 in April. Does that count him out for is there any leniency there?

    Forward to hearing from you, Thanks Sophie 02157171
