Research Goals

The overall goal of the study was to increase our theoretical understanding of the factors that impact adherence to dietary interventions.  The specific study objectives included:

1) to conduct formative research to construct a broad conceptual framework to explain adherence to a low-fat diet of WHI women participating in the Dietary Modification (DM) arm (Phase I);

2) to investigate factors related to adherence to <20% fat of total calories by WHI participants in the DM Intervention framework, (Phase II); and to utilize the constructed framework.

3) to develop an intervention algorithm (based on the findings of Phases I and II) to train nutritionists in behavioral counseling interventions to enhance adherence to a low-fat diet (Phase III).
