ManUp: Final Report

Abstract

The health of Australian males is poorer than their female counterparts; in part due to males’ lower physical activity levels, poor dietary habits and lack of knowledge of these behaviours. The current project sought to develop an innovative approach to increase the level of physical activity, healthy eating and literacy of these topics. To achieve this goal the project was conducted in four inter-related phases : Phase 1 – Systematic Review of literature regarding lifestyle interventions in males, Phase 2 – Intervention Development, Phase 3 – Randomised Control Trial, and Phase 4 – Dissemination.
