Refining a smartphone application to reduce binge eating in Black women

The purpose of this study is to design and beta test a smartphone application by modifying a validated intervention to improve self-monitoring of biological signals of hunger and satiety in Black women. Participants will engage weekly using the digital tool to update their progress. The tool will offer participants a guided eating behavior and nutrition intervention along with other resources to assist them during the study. The course of the study will be 12 weeks. It is our goal that this research plan will form the basis for a future multi-center clinical trial testing the efficacy of the digital health tool for improving binge eating and weight outcomes among adults who binge eat.
