Purpose & Background: Poor diet and sedentary lifestyle are leading causes of morbidity and premature mortality. This component of the study compared the sustainability of changes in eating and physical activity behaviors among rural midlife and older women who had received theory-based tailored versus standard newsletters during the previous year. Subjects: 220 rural women aged 50-69. Methods: Experimental comparison group design. Women were recruited via random digit dialing. The intervention was framed within the Health Promotion Model (Pender, 1996) and consisted of 18 computer-generated tailored or standard newsletters over a 12 month period. Tailored newsletter messages were based upon data from women=s periodic assessments; standard newsletters included more general messages. During the follow-up year, there was no intervention but behavioral markers and biomarkers were assessed at 18 & 24 months. Nurses individually supervised women in completing computerized established reliable and valid measures of healthy eating, physical activity and behavioral determinants. Behavioral markers were self-reported eating and activity; biomarkers were lipids, body mass index, % body fat, cardiorespiratory fitness, flexibility, lower body strength and blood pressure. Results: For the year following the intervention, repeated measures ANOVAs found significant (p < .05) time effects over 12, 18 & 24 months for % calories from fat (ü¬), weekly strengthening minutes (ü½), cardiorespiratory fitness (ü½), and blood pressure (ü½); and time x group interactions for fruit servings and Kcals expended per Kg of body weight (favoring the standard group), and for lower body strength and % body fat (favoring the tailored group). Results of planned comparisons from the end of the intervention at 12 months to 18 & 24 months will be reported. Implications: Some but not all desirable healthy eating and physical activity outcomes of both tailored and standard newsletters were sustained in the year following the intervention.
