School of Food and Agriculture (SP, MT), University of Maine, Orono, Maine.

The objective of the study was to assess the relationship between participation in the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) and food-related behavior change, as measured by the Healthy Eating Index (HEI)-2005, using a single-state, case study approach. Pre-EFNEP and post-EFNEP participation HEI scores as well as demographic, geographic, socioeconomic, and program participation characteristics from fiscal years 2013-2016 were analyzed using summary statistics and Ordinary Least Squares regressions. HEI scores were adjusted for age, sex, race, rural/urban residence, county, highest grade achieved, income, number of children, public assistance programs, and number of hours in EFNEP in the analysis.

Am J Lifestyle Med 2020 May-Jun;14(3):294-303. Epub 2019 May 9.

Preventive Medicine, Loma Linda University, Loma Linda, California (JL).

Over 75% of patients in the primary care setting present with stress-related complaints. Curiously, patients and health care providers all too often see stress as a relatively benign sequela of many common illnesses such as heart disease, cancer, lung disease, dementia, diabetes, and mental illness. Unfortunately, various day-to-day lifestyle choices and environmental factors, unrelated to the presence of any disease, can cause stress sufficient to contribute to the development of various diseases/disorders and suboptimal health.

Edington Associates, Ann Arbor, Michigan (DWE).

The cost of medical care in the United States is increasing at an unsustainable rate. The lifestyle medicine (LM) approach is essential to influence the root causes of the growing chronic disease burden. LM addresses health risk factors in primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention of developing disease rather than limiting resources and medical expenditures on acute care and reacting to illness, injury, and disease.

Quality of Life: The Primary Goal of Lifestyle Intervention.

Am J Lifestyle Med 2020 May-Jun;14(3):267-270. Epub 2020 Feb 26.

Department of Health and Human Performance, University of Houston, Houston, Texas.

In much of lifestyle medicine, health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is a primary focus with the assumption that symptom reduction increases quality of life (QoL) in a more global sense. Lifestyle medicine research has shown that reducing symptoms increases the likelihood that QoL is improved. However, little information is available as to the impact of interventions when they are not effective in creating the desired healthy outcomes. Read More

Critical Consciousness of Food Systems as a Potential Lifestyle Intervention on Health Issues.

Am J Lifestyle Med 2020 May-Jun;14(3):258-263. Epub 2020 Feb 28.

University of Hawaii at Manoa, Honolulu, Hawaii (SE, CD, TK).

When examining food systems in contemporary, industrialized, and globalized nations such as the United States, there is a quantity over quality cultural mind-set driven by capitalism. This creates an environment in which consumer desires for convenient lifestyles run high, mainly focused on the production of food and individual financial gain rather than the food systems as a whole. This approach neglects the overall outcomes in health, wellness, health disparities, and the sustainability footprint associated with consumption. Read More

Department of Human Nutrition, Food and Animal Sciences, College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources (HH, VAA, JB), University of Hawaii at Manoa, Honolulu, Hawaii.

To determine the impact of educational programs on immigrant groups in the United States, nutrition educators must have assessment and evaluation tools that use the language and vocabulary of the target population. Filipino Americans exhibit health disparities with regard to several conditions and are an important target for nutrition education. Currently, there are no existing rigorously tested tools in the Tagalog language which also have a low user burden and are designed to measure diet for assessment and evaluation of nutrition education programs.

For years many have believed that genetic heritage defined one's destiny, if an individual would grow to be healthy, or if he or she would suffer from chronic illness or cancer. Recent scientific evidence and the field of epigenetics has proven this to be untrue. Certainly, the DNA sequence and the genetic code are fixed; but the field of epigenetics has shown how methylation and other chemical modifications of the genome directly influence the production of proteins that can alter the phenotype of an organism.

A Unique, Innovative, Easy-to-Use Program to Improve Young Children's Attitudes About and Consumption of Fruits and Vegetables.

Am J Lifestyle Med 2020 Jan-Feb;14(1):24-27. Epub 2019 Sep 27.

Hawaii Pacific University, Honolulu, Hawaii (KM).

Getting children to eat fruits and vegetables (FV) is an important strategy for the prevention of childhood obesity. However, efforts to increase access to FV have also resulted in many of the vegetables and fruits being wasted, leaving children without the nutritional benefits and the resources not achieving their full desired impact. Multidisciplinary influences have shaped a new program for children ages 2 to 7 that can increase the desirability of and consumption of FV. Read More

During early childhood, the preschool years serve as a formative time for the development of movement skills and healthy, active behaviors. Currently, one fifth of children in this population are overweight or obese and only half of the children participate in sufficient activity to meet recommendations. Physical activity guidelines for preschool children include both structured and unstructured activities of various intensities, limitations on sedentary behaviors, fundamental motor skill competence, and the inclusion of caregivers to facilitate activity.

Design and Implementation of a Lifestyle Medicine Curriculum in Undergraduate Medical Education.

Am J Lifestyle Med 2019 Nov-Dec;13(6):574-585. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville, South Carolina (JLT, IAE, AB, ABK, MT).

While scientific evidence demonstrates conclusive associations between unhealthy lifestyle behaviors and increased morbidity and mortality related to noncommunicable chronic diseases (NCDs), most physicians are not formally taught the root causes of NCDs nor how to counsel patients regarding their lifestyle behaviors for disease prevention and treatment. Since its inception in 2012, the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville has designed, developed, and implemented an innovative, formalized lifestyle medicine curriculum to provide required undergraduate medical student training with a graduating program-level goal to "Deliver total health care using lifestyle medicine to prevent and treat morbidity and mortality related to chronic diseases." The process was guided by the Association of American Medical Colleges' Core Entrustable Professional Activities (required for graduates entering residency) and aimed to satisfy the Quadruple Aim components of better outcomes, lower cost, improved patient experience, and improved physician experience.

Am J Lifestyle Med 2019 Nov-Dec;13(6):552-555. Epub 2019 Sep 16.

Harvard Medical School, Department of Surgery (AES), Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts.

In the past 20 years, interest in mindfulness and its cultivation through various meditative practices has increased astronomically. This is reflected in the popularity of mindfulness training programs, its ever-widening exposure in popular culture, and in the number of scientific articles published on the topic. With the recent focus on burnout in the medical profession and reports of high levels of anxiety and depression among residents and staff physicians, the potential applications of mindfulness are becoming increasingly apparent in the hospital setting.

Financial Education and Coaching: A Lifestyle Medicine Approach to Addressing Financial Stress.

Am J Lifestyle Med 2019 Nov-Dec;13(6):540-543. Epub 2019 Jul 29.

Department of Pharmacy Practice, Creighton University School of Pharmacy and Health Professions, Omaha, Nebraska (NW, KP).

Economic stability is a well-documented social determinant of health, and financial stress is an important driver for the health disparities observed in the poor. Persons under financial stress are more likely to engage in smoking, alcohol consumption, overspending, poor diet, and reduced exercise. Financial education and coaching is one strategy that can be used to reduce financial stress and potentially improve engagement in healthy lifestyle behaviors, quality of life, and objective health outcomes.

Integrating Mindfulness Into Eating Behaviors.

Am J Lifestyle Med 2019 Nov-Dec;13(6):537-539. Epub 2019 Aug 15.

University of Houston, Texas (MDS, KRA, TAL).

Food choices and eating behaviors are influenced by a wide variety of factors. However, traditional dietary advice primarily addresses health-related reasons for eating. Lifestyle medicine outcomes may be improved by helping individuals become more aware of why they eat and support individuals to increase their skills in reconciling eating for health and nonhealth purposes.

Psychosocial Determinants of Chronic Disease: Implications for Lifestyle Medicine.

School of Health and Human Sciences, Southern Cross University, Lismore, New South Wales, Australia (GE, JS).

We have previously identified a number of "determinants" of chronic disease, using the acronym NASTIE ODOURS. These have been given the collective term "anthropogens," in this journal and other publications, to help direct the management of modern chronic ailments to a monocausal focus, akin to that afforded infectious diseases by the "germ theory." We suggested the acronym NASTIE ODOURS as a starting point for a taxonomy of lifestyle medicine determinants. Read More
