Research + Funding 

In 2018, Dr. Creasy began his Ludeman Center-funded research project titled, “Effects of Menopause on Propensity for Weight Regain.” Very little research has been conducted to examine differences in propensity for weight regain, energy expenditure, energy intake, and physical activity between pre- and postmenopausal women following weight loss. The primary aim of his work was to investigate potential differences in propensity for weight regain between pre- and post-menopausal women. Based upon preclinical and clinical research, women who have gone through menopause may have a difficult time increasing physical activity and energy expenditure as a strategy for achieving weight loss maintenance. Thus, postmenopausal women may be at an increased risk for weight regain following weight loss.  

He recognizes the Ludeman Center for their support through regular training opportunities and outstanding network of mentors and researchers dedicated to women’s health. 


Transforming Women’s Health

Inspired by helping people transform their lives by eating better, increasing physical activity and improving their sleep, Dr. Creasy has dedicated most of his work to improving lifestyle behaviors for weight management. In general, 75% of the participants in his research who are seeking weight loss are females, making it critical for him to understand the energy balance regulation in females. 

His current research focuses on how patterns, such as timing and consistency, of physical activity, food intake and sleep all influence body weight regulation and how the time that exercise is performed affects energy metabolism.
