A Mobile App to Address Binge Eating & Weight

A significant subset of individuals with obesity have comorbid binge eating; yet, no behavioral treatment addresses both conditions and current treatment approaches cannot reach all people in need. We are designing a mobile intervention for obesity and binge eating that has potential for scale and more precisely matches this subgroup’s needs. Using user-centered design approaches, we are designing the app to address the needs of target users. Then, the intervention will be evaluated and optimized to include only the “active ingredients” that successfully improve outcomes. Taken together, this work aims to achieve the ultimate goal of establishing a scalable intervention that improves the precision of care for obesity and binge eating.
