The prevalence of overweight is increasing among younger Americans, especially among African Americans and Mexican-Americans, and in those with low income in any race. In response to this increasing prevalence, the Healthy People 2010 draft includes goals to (a) reduce overweight among adolescents aged 12-19 through sound dietary practices and increased physical activity and (b) incorporate comprehensive school health education involving health professionals, community members and parents. We will describe issues in adapting an intervention for Internet and video delivery along with preliminary findings of effectiveness in reducing fat in diet and increasing physical activity among low income, culturally diverse middle school students. In a classroom study of the low fat diet and physical activity intervention, post-test fat in food was significantly less for the intervention group as compared with the control (t=2.018; df 99; p=0.046). Duration of exercise also was significantly higher for the intervention group as compared with the control group (t=2.925; df 81; p=0.004) following the intervention. We are now investigating Internet delivery of the intervention reinforced with five minute videos in focus groups, followed by a pre-test, post-test, control group design.
