Final Report - TEMPEST (Temptations to Eat Moderated by Personal and Environmental Self-regulation Tools)

Project ID: 223488
Funded under: FP7-HEALTH

Abstract

This is the final report for the TEMPEST project which was funded under the Seventh Framework Package (FP7). The project aimed to find out in what way adolescents (10-17 years of age) can learn to regulate their food intake in a food replete environment. Almost 15,000 adolescents participated in the project. The TEMPEST projects entails six Work Packages (apart from a management WP), all of which are covered in the report. These include: Assessing health-related self-regulatory competence (WP2), Macro-environmental influences on self-regulatory competence and weight-related behaviours (WP3), Meso-environmental influences on self-regulatory competence and weight-related behaviour (WP4), Impact of incentive schemes on weight-related temptations, self-regulatory competence and weight-related behaviours (W5), Impact of weight-related temptations on self-regulatory competence and weight-related behaviours (WP6), and Dissemination and exploitation (WP7). Main TEMPEST findings have been described in a TEMPEST handbook (available in nine languages) that is specifically aimed at informing health professionals, parents and teachers about the role of self-regulation in the prevention of overweight.
