Abstract:
Many people fail to perform healthy behaviours, despite holding positive attitudes towards acting healthily. Examining moderators (e.g., individual difference variables and mood) and different types of attitudes (implicit/explicit attitudes) might explain variance in behaviour unaccounted for explicit attitudes alone. Using the Implicit Association Test, the five studies within this thesis tested these issues in relation to eating behaviour.
