Welcome to Fast Track to Health.

Welcome to the Fast Track to Health Study (known as Fast Track). This is a research study for young people who are well above a healthy weight.

We are looking for young people to take part in this study in both Sydney and Melbourne.

What is fast track about?

  • We will compare the effect of two different eating plans on health and well being in young people.

  • People who take part in Fast Track will follow one of the two eating plans below:

    • Intermittent Energy Restricted plan

    • Reduced Calorie plan

  • We will measure weight loss and risk factors for heart disease and diabetes.

  • We will measure eating behaviours and psychological wellbeing

  • We will see how acceptable these plans are to young people.

  • The study runs for 12 months and participation is FREE of charge.
