Abstract

A system providing individualized dietary feedback reports was evaluated in a university-based study of 166 subjects. Although 62 of subjects with fat intakes of 30 of total kilocalories or less recognized that they had low fat intakes, only 25nt; of those with fat intakes in excess of 30 of total kilocalories were aware that their intake exceeded the goal. After feedback, those subjects with fat intakes greater than 30 of total kilocalories were more likely to report that they intended to reduce their fat intake and increased their use of fat reduction behaviors at follow-up compared with subjects consuming 30 of total kilocalories or less from fat at baseline. © 1993 Aspen Publishers, Inc.
