Individual Counseling about Healthy Eating

Examples

 

Men at risk for heart disease received counseling from a dietitian on losing weight by reducing fat intake, increasing fruit and vegetable intake, and increasing consumption of grains.

 

Individual callers to the National Cancer Institute’s Cancer Information Service received a brief counseling intervention. Messages were adapted from the 5 A Day for Better Health program, and participants were sent follow-up 5 A Day print materials.

Research-Tested Intervention Programs (RTIPs)

 

The PHLAME (Promoting Healthy Living: Assessing More Effects) program promotes heart health among firefighters using a peer-led, team-centered curriculum and a counselor-led intervention. The program promotes healthy eating habits, regular physical activity, and appropriate body weight.
