* 1. This online pre-screen survey is for the “2 Diet Comparison” study at the Clinical Nutrition Research Center, Illinois Institute of Technology.

If you are interested in this study, please complete the pre-screen survey questions in order to find out if you meet the pre-criteria before coming for an on-site screening visit. There are no right or wrong answers. We appreciate your time.

The purpose of this study is to test how 2 different diet plans effect blood sugar, blood insulin, blood pressure, appetite control and other markers of health. The procedures in this pre-screen survey do not involve any known risks. Participation is voluntary; at any time you may discontinue this survey.
You will not be compensated for either this pre-screen survey or screening visit, but will be compensated once you are eligible for the study and complete the clinical study visits.

Confidentiality will be maintained to the degree permitted by the technology used.
Your participation in this online survey involves risks similar to a person’s everyday use of the Internet.
Any information that we learn about you that can be traced to you will be used responsibly and will be protected against release to unauthorized persons.

If you meet the pre-eligible criteria based on this survey, we will contact you for an on-site information session and screening visit. During the Information Session, you will learn about the study and what you will do if you participate in the study. For the on-site screening, you will be asked to be fasting for at least 10 hours. During this time, we will ask that you do not eat or drink anything BUT water. We also ask that you drink water before arriving at our research center for your screening visit. It is important that you are fasting because we will be measuring your blood sugar levels at your on-site screening visit.
