Peterson,Duncan, Null, Roth, and Gill, researchers at the Southern Illinois University Carbondale, discussed how improving college student perceptions and selections of healthier food improved their eating behaviors. For three weeks, researchers conducted pre and post surveys with 104 college students. Researchers wanted to highlight how changes int their eating behaviors only lasted a short period before reverting back in the long run. Journal of American College Health readers will be the intended audience. Researchers interested in college health, because they will be able to further study the reasoning behind college students’ relapses.
