Trial of 2 TeleComputer Diet Change Maintenance Programs
RCT is completed. However, the eligibility was 18 y/o or greater and living in Greater
Boston area. The participants used an evidenced based dietary intervention for 3 months and
then were randomized to 1 of 3 arms. Those in the experimental arm received a 6 mo
intervention based on social cognitive theory or goal systems theory. The intervention was
designed to help the participants maintain previously achieved changes in the their diet,
e.g., fruits and vegetables. The outcome measures are fruit and vegetable consumption as
measured by servings on multiple dietary measures as well as a 24 hr dietary recall.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Subject), Primary Purpose: Prevention
The study hypothesis is that the goal systems intervention will out perform the social cognitive intervention and that both of these interventions will outperform the control group for fruit and vegetable consumption.
