The purpose of this study is determine if AAT has potential to reduce binge eating and prevent weight gain for Black women. In conjunction with the UNC Weight Management program, we will recruit 60 women from the Durham and Chapel Hill area who report weekly binge eating episodes, and invite them to participate in a 6-month AAT intervention. At 3 and 6 months, we will examine changes in binge eating and weight for participants in the intervention and the control group. The results of this study will provide additional evidence on the potential of AAT to prevent and treat obesity in Black women.
