Inclusion Criteria:



- We will require that adolescents have age- and sex- adjusted standardized body mass
index (BMI) scores between the 25th and 75th percentile at baseline for inclusion.

- Low risk youth: Lean parents will have a BMI between 18 and 25.

- High risk youth: Obese parents will have a BMI value of greater than 30.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Students who report contraindicators of fMRI (e.g., metal implants, braces, or
pregnancy).

- Current major psychiatric disorders (including substance use disorders, conduct
disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, ADHD, major depression, bipolar disorder,
panic disorder, agoraphobia, or generalized anxiety disorder)

- Relevant food allergies

- Current smoking

- Current weight loss dieting
