    1. The way it works is you contact the organization and let them know that you are interested in participating in a study, they will ask you a lot of questions, and will probably give you some blood tests. If you are chosen, they will either put you on a diet or give you pills to take. Every time you go in to the study offices, they will generally pay you, by either a check or debit card.

    1. You need to look for research projects involved in dieting and weight loss. Start with CraigsList to see if there are any research programs looking for subjects. Then do a search on the Internet, for “Volunteers needed for weight loss studies.”
