Thank you for your interest, but the research study is currently at capacity. If you would still like to be a part of our weight-loss program, you are able to do so by purchasing Digbi Cares.

Research Study

The study is in three phases: 16 week, 6 month and 12 month

  • You will measure your waist and hips 3 times (at the beginning, at 16 weeks, and at 52 weeks), using a tape measure we provide.
  • We will provide you 3 gut biome kits (to analyze your gut microbiome) three times: once at the beginning, once at 16 weeks, and once at the end of a year.
  • You will visit a clinical laboratory three times (once at the beginning, at 16 weeks, and at the end of year), to get your blood drawn and your cholesterol and blood sugar checked. We pay for it.
  • We will provide a DNA kit to obtain a saliva sample to analyze your DNA.
  • You will get personalized food and meal recommendations, along with access to recipes, grocery lists, and meal planners.
  • You will track everything you eat & drink, as well as how well you sleep and how much you exercise, using an app on your smartphone or computer.
  • You will track your weight regularly using the app.
  • You will meet by phone with a health coach over 26 sessions (weekly for 16 weeks, biweekly for 2 sessions, and monthly for 8 sessions).
