Final Report - TEMPEST (Temptations to Eat Moderated by Personal and Environmental Self-regulation Tools)
Project ID: 223488Funded under: FP7-HEALTH
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.
