Eat Well Live Well Nutrition Program
Dietary Changes in African American Women By Activation

The purpose of the study is to develop and evaluate a dietary change program specifically for low-income, African-American women who are at risk for developing diabetes due to obesity. The program uses an innovative approach that emphasizes risk awareness, self-efficacy, and skills training through active learning exercises related to healthy eating. The program is delivered by peer educators in the community and addresses economic and cultural factors that are very important to program participants.

Behavioral: Eat Well Live Well Nutrition Program

12 sessions (6 group and 6 individual)over a period of 3 months with a 3 month follow-up period. The group sessions involve active learning exercises crucial to learning and utilizing nutrition information.

The group sessions included are:

  • Rate Your Plate: determining high fat foods
  • Label Reading: reading food labels
  • Comparison Shopping: using unit pricing labels maximize nutritional value on a limited income
  • Recipe Modification: preparing old recipes in new ways to reduce fat
  • Eating Out: order healthier fast foods
  • Coping with High Risk Situations: coping with situations in which these new habits may be threatened

Six individual sessions will introduce participants to low fat eating patterns or ways to lower fat in their diet, including:

  • Substituting fat-modified foods for high fat foods
  • Avoiding fat as a seasoning or flavoring
  • Avoiding fried foods
  • Modifying meat
  • Replacing high fat foods with fruits, vegetables, grains and breads
