Improving dietary adherence


Book Section

Of the many challenges clinicians face, those associated with unhealthy diet practices may be the most widespread and the most difficult to address and overcome. This is because everyone has performed the ritual of eating (and drinking) more frequently and for longer than any other health habit. Food and drink are associated with a number of factors that can make adherence to a new diet regimen quite challenging, including a person's sense of comfort and pleasure, underlying physiology, social interactions, ethnic and family traditions, and cravings. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
