HHP faculty Dr. Tracey Ledoux was recently featured on UH news for her research on using blood glucose readings to learn signs of hunger and combat obesity. The study conducted at HHP's Texas Obesity Research Center equipped chronic dieters with blood glucose monitoring devices. Participants were required to use the device to confirm their hunger before eating. This prevented participants from using external cues or negative emotions as triggers for consuming food. By the end of the study, most participants had lost weight and were less likely to eat because of external reasons.
