NutritionQuest's Alive! Program Improves Quality of Life
Date:11/20/2008

ld be randomized to a group that would have to wait eight months," said Barbara Sternfeld, PhD, Senior Research Scientist at the Division of Research at Kaiser and Principal Investigator of the study.

The program was conducted entirely by email. Participants in the intervention group received an individualized program over a 16-week period. Each week they were offered a list of suggested goals to work on that week, tailored to their own dietary and activity habits. "We weren't explicitly trying to improve their quality of life," said Block. "But I suspect that committing to improve their lives, and succeeding in a series of small steps, led to the quality of life changes."

Before enrolling, potential participants filled out a questionnaire on their diet, physical activity and quality of life, and received immediate feedback on their diet and activity in relation to national guidelines. "We believe this information on their own diet and activity level contributed to their motivation to participate," said Clifford Block, PhD, Behavioral Scientist at NutritionQuest.
