Abstract
The Weighing Project follows developments in weight and lifestyle. The project consists of two parts: The Weighing Questionnaire and the Weighing Scale Data.

The Weighing Questionnaire is presented monthly to selected households.

For the Weighing Scale Data, CentERdata sent weighing scales to selected households. Depending on the experimental group, household members weigh themselves with a certain frequency, after which they can get a certain form of feedback about their measures. The data are automatically redirected to CentERdata and disseminated monthly.
