Understanding and Changing Eating Behavior : In-the-Moment Assessments Provide New Perspectives for Health Promotion
The rising prevalence of non-communicable diseases challenges health psychology research to find effective intervention strategies to change people´s health behaviors. It is particularly important to change eating behavior since this constitutes one of the most important preventive health behaviors. To facilitate eating behavior changes, new technologies such as smartphone applications (apps) are booming and are increasingly being considered in intervention development. App-based mobile interventions not only include a wide range of technical options along with the capability to reach a broad spectrum of the population, but also the possibility to intervene in real-life and real-time.
|(2019): Human Behavior and Experiences in Real-Life : The Potential of In-the-Moment Assessment||
An affective experience exists in different states - what we forecast the experience to be, what we experience in the actual moment, and what we remember having experienced. However, neither forecasted nor remembered experience is an exact copy of the in-the-moment experience. A great number of studies across various populations and settings has shown that both forecasted and retrospectively remembered experiences tend to be too extreme and systematically biased compared to the actual in-the-moment experience (‘impact bias‘). Most research has examined biases and the resulting divergences between states of experience for outstanding and rather confined events, such as a vacation experiences or medical treatments. The present dissertation expands on this research by focusing on repeated, familiar experiences of daily life, taking eating happiness as an example to enhance the generalizability of the divergence of both forecasts and retrospections compared to in-the-moment experiences. The differentiation between outstanding and repeated day-to-day experiences is important since in the latter case, people have individual past experiences that they can rely on.
