Losing weight can be difficult, exhausting and frustrating. With all the poor information and bad messages out there, it’s hard to know what really works when it comes to weight loss. NPR’s science desk is working on stories about overcoming the biological and mental hurdles to losing weight, and we want to hear from you.

Please describe your experience in the form below or follow this link to respond. Part of this project involves putting voices on air, so we’d love if you could send us a voice memo. You can do that in the form, or email a voice memo to, with “weight loss” in the subject line.

Your response may be used in an upcoming story, on air or on Thanks!
