Reviewers Comments: This curriculum is designed to help people recognize fad diets and teach them how to set more realistic goals. Participants are encouraged to incorporate nutritional changes they can live with for a lifetime, including balanced meals and snacks and moderate physical activity. There are five handouts included with this curriculum, as well as a program evaluation. The curriculum is based on the principles of behavior change and includes activities that help participants incorporate changes into their lives. Behavior modification techniques are included in the lesson as a part of the second handout. A review of MyPyramid, serving size equivalents, and changes from previous versions of food guidance are also included. The program evaluation consists of three questions evaluating participant's behaviors and intentions before and after experiencing the program, also a measure of behavior change.
