Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To evaluate the effectiveness of the "My Body Knows When" intuitive-eating (IE) program tailored to assist Fort Drum military spouses in rejecting the dieting mentality.

METHODS:

Randomized prospective study (N = 61) evaluating dieting mentality and health indicators for a 10-week intervention based on 10 IE principles. The program was developed through the PRECEDE/PROCEED (PP) health promotion planning model.

RESULTS:

The intuitive-eating program was able to significantly transition participants away from a dieting mentality (P < 0.015 posttest) towards intuitive-eating lifestyle behaviors.

CONCLUSIONS:

IE is a holist approach to long-term healthy behavior change and would benefit from an extended support system to improve effectiveness.
