Pounds Lost Research Study Members

Is anybody else out there part of the Harvard University/LSU Pounds Lost Research Study? I'm in the Gold (low fat) group. I'm wondering what the other groups (blue, white, crimson) are eating, how the program is working for you, and how you like it.

Blinded research

Most of these studies are blinded so while you have a title and name, the actual group consistencies are unknown and participants are not supposed to communicate because they confound the research and cause problems when analyzing the results. It can give both false positives and false negatives. That is the reason why names such as blue, white, crimson, etc. were associated as they have no connotations such as pigs, cows, birds, and squirrels would have.
