The HEalth Registry of Obesity (HERO) is a study being conducted by researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles. We are researchers who study healthy behaviors and well-being. We think people can be healthy, regardless of what number shows up on the scale. Our goal is to gather a group of people who might be considered obese by conventional standards, but are perfectly healthy. We know there are many of you out there. The purpose of our study is to understand what thoughts, behaviors, and qualities are characteristic of this “fit-and-fat” group, so that in the future,
everyone - no matter what they weigh - can enjoy good health.
