Ratings: (0)|Views: 12|Likes:
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a major cause of death. Diet and physical exercise are key to preventing CVD. Psychologically-based interventions to improve diet are discussed. Successful alteration of exercise behaviours is also examined. The potential of combined interventions is discussed. Vulnerability of women to CVD, and the effects of low SES onCVD are investigated. Suggestions are made for future research.

Abstract:
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in the industrialisedworld, and its impact is rapidly spreading to the developing world. Healthy eating and physical exercise are two of the key behaviours that help to prevent CVD. In this paper, characteristics of healthy eating interventions, such as planning, self-efficacyand intensiveness are discussed, along with the role of policy changes. Factors leadingto successful alteration of exercise behaviours, such as personal values, perceivedself-efficacy and personal resources are also described, and the potential of combinedinterventions, targeting both behavioural contexts, is examined. The particular vulnerability of women to CVD is discussed, and reasons for the particular susceptibility of people of low SES to CVD are investigated. Suggestions are madefor future research.2
