Effects of The Transtheoretical Model Application for Eating Behaviors in Non-Commissioned Officers with Metabolic Syndrome
Keywords:dietary behaviours, transtheoretical model, metabolic syndrome
This quasi-experimental study aims to investigate the effectiveness of the Transtheoretical model based dietary behavioural modification programme in non-commissioned officers with metabolic syndrome. Participants were divided into intervention and control group of 32 participants in each group. Transtheoretical model based dietary behavioural modification programme was delivered in the intervention group. and was evaluated by specific dietary behaviours questionnaires and evaluation forms. The evaluation was carried out at pre and post intervention period and the follow-up period. Statistical analysis consisted of descriptive and inferential statistics including percentage, mean, standard deviation, Independent t-test, and Repeated Measure one-way ANOVA.
The intervention group revealed higher dietary behaviours score at the post-intervention period compared with the pre-intervention period with statistical significance (p < .05). During the follow-up period, the intervention group also performed higher self-determination, perceived behavioural control, and dietary behaviours score than both pre-intervention and post-intervention periods with statistical significance (p < .05). The intervention group also received higher self-determination and perceive behavioural control score than the control group during the follow-up period (p < .05).
