Stran, Knol, Severt, and Lawrence, professors at the University of Alabama, discovered college students ordered fewer amount of calories when labels and calorie information were posted. These professor conduced research among their students to study their Theory of Planned Behavior(TPB). The purpose of this study was to determine the predictors of intention to use calorie labels among college students using constructs of the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB). (Stran et al. ,2016). American Journal of Health Education readers interested in Human Behavioral Theory will be the intended audience. Researchers interested in Theory of Planned Behavior(TPB) will found this information useful, because it concluded a detail observation on how planned behavior influenced college students’ choices.
