Dr. Geiselman has many diverse research areas of interest, which include:
1) Use of the Geiselman Macronutrient Self-selection Paradigm © (MSSP) and Geiselman Food Preference Questionnaire © (FPQ) for the accurate assessment of fat and other specific macronutrient intake and fat preference in lean, obese, and post-obese, Caucasian and minority men and women under a variety of experimental conditions;
2) Role of endogenous and exogenous female sex hormones in the control of food intake, fat preference, and specific macronutrient intake in pre- and post-menopausal women;
3) Fat preference, specific macronutrient appetite control, and obesity prevention before and after smoking cessation in postmenopausal African-American and Caucasian women with and without hormone replacement therapy;
4) Fat preference, specific macronutrient appetite control, and obesity prevention before and after smoking cessation in premenopausal women with respect to endogenous and exogenous female sex hormones;
5) Pharmacologic manipulations for control of specific macronutrient appetites and fat preferences following smoking cessation in pre- and post-menopausal women
6) Development of individually tailored, dietary and weight control programs based on a subject's food preferences as assessed by the MSSP and the FPQ;
7) Effectiveness of dietary counseling strategies as assessed by the MSSP and FPQ; Specific macronutrient appetites and food preferences as predictors of compliance with caloric restriction regimens;
8) Specific macronutrient appetites and food preferences as predictors of aging outcomes;
9) Effects of estrogen in modulating anorexigenic (leptin, cholecystokinin, serotonin, glucagon, interleukin-1b, corticotropin-releasing hormone) and orexigenic (neuropeptide Y, melanin-concentrating hormone) effectors;
10) Effects of a myco-protein food product on satiation and satiety;
11) Spiritual dance treatment in overweight and obese postmenopausal women.
