This study will test a website for teens designed to help them improve both diet and physical activity. The website will have several components: educational messages, role model stories, goal setting, self-monitoring forms, problem solving, a monitored discussion forum, and diet and physical activity (PA) assessment questionnaires.
Increasing numbers of youth are at risk for becoming overweight because of poor diets and low physical activity levels. Prevention is key to reducing the obesity problem. Intervention programs must be easily accessible, and include intervention materials in a format that draws attention and interest. This study evaluates an 8-week web-based intervention for teens to promote healthy food and physical activity choices. The web program includes role model stories, nutrition and activity information pieces, goal setting and problem solving, and self-monitoring. Students will complete assessments at baseline, 8-weeks post, and then 6 and 12-months post intervention.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Subject), Primary Purpose: Prevention
