    Hi,

    I'm doing a research project at university on diets and crash diets and was wondering if anyone would be prepared to do a questionaire?

    Diets & Crash Diets

    What sort of diets have you tried?

    What do you think is the most effective one?

    How did it make you feel?

    How old were you when you first went on a diet?

    What made you go on the diet?

    What is the worst diet you have ever been on?

    Were there any side effects?

    Are you currently on a diet?

    How often do you go on a diet? and how often do you relapse?

    Do you find it easier to diet with someone else or go it alone?

    Would you define any of your diets to be a crash diet?

    Thank's in advance
