Abstract
THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP AND TEST A THEORETICAL MODEL FOR THE PREDICTION AND ASSESSMENT OF COMPLIANT DIETARY BEHAVIOR. THE MODEL IS BASED ON AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE COMPLEXITY OF DIETARY BEHAVIOR AND THE PSYCHOSOCIAL FACTORS THAT INFLUENCE FOOD SELECTION AND CONSUMPTION PATTERNS, AS WELL AS ON THE SUSCEPTIBILITY TO CHANGE AND MAINTAIN LONG-TERM ADHERENCE TO A CHANGE IN DIET-ARY BEHAVIOR. A SELF-EFFICACY AND OUTCOME EXPECTANCY MODEL THAT INCORPORATES EFFECTANCE THEORY AND SOCIAL LEARNING THEORY WILL BE DEVELOPED IN PHASE I OF THIE PROJECT. THE MODEL WILL CONSIST OF SEVERAL SETS OF MEASURES: PATTERN OF DIETARY BEHAVIOR AND FOOD SELECTION, ENVIRONMENTAL AND PERSONAL DETERMINANTS OF DIETARY BEHAVIOR, NONDIETARY DECISION-MAKING TRAITS, AND SELF-EFFICACY AND OUTCOME EXPECTANCIES RELATIVE TO DIETARY BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION STRATEGIES.
