Obesity of Thai adolescents in the eastern region of Thailand has become a widespread problem as Thailand changes from an agricultural to an industrial country. With industrialization, salaries increase allowing the purchase of more food and technological equipment that promotes sedentary activities. Health trends in the eastern region have changed to be similar to developed countries. The purpose of this study was to describe the eating and exercise behaviors of Thai adolescents who live on the eastern seaboard of Thailand. Using Pender’s health promotion model, 1,086 high school students who were 13-18 years of age from six high schools on the eastern seaboard of Thailand were recruited. Students completed a demographic form, the Health Promoting Lifestyle Profile-Thai (HPLP-T), and several questionnaires regarding physical activity including competing demands, role models, norms, benefits, barriers, self-efficacy, daily activity, and social support. Physical measurements for all students included weight and height from which body mass indexes were calculated. Three hundred students participated in lipid profile and blood sugar measurements. With descriptive statistics, overweight and thin adolescents will be described using the health promotion model. Results will provide direction for health prevention and promotion for Thai adolescents. Funded by the Thai government.
