Brief Summary:

The EatWellUK study aims to investigate the effectiveness of a mobile web application (e-Nutri), capable of delivering automated personalised nutrition advice, in increasing diet quality.

Dietary assessment is via the validated Food4Me FFQ (with an updated user interface that has been designed for better usability) and dietary feedback is derived according to adherence to an 11-item modified US Alternative Healthy Eating Index (m-AHEI).

Arm Intervention/treatment
Placebo Comparator: Non-personalised advice

Control group. Online (web-based) delivery of non-personalised dietary, weight and physical activity advice based on the UK general health guidelines.

This is an online trial and this arm will be using the e-Nutri web application. Participants in this group will receive online general recommendations (non-personalised).

Behavioral: Non-personalised advice
Provision of online non-personalised advice on dietary intake, weight and physical activity levels. Non-personalized dietary advice for improved food choice based on standard population health guidelines.

Experimental: Personalised advice
Online (web-based) delivery of personalised dietary, weight and physical activity advice based on the individual's dietary intake, weight and physical activity levels, generated by the e-Nutri web application. Participants in this group will receive online personalised reports.
Behavioral: Personalised advice
Provision of online personalised advice on dietary intake, weight and physical activity levels. Personalised recommendations for improved food choice based on adherence to an 11-item modified US Alternative Healthy Eating Index (m-AHEI), for weight based on ideal BMI range and for physical activity based on the Baecke questionnaire/results.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Dietary intake [ Time Frame: baseline, 6 weeks, 12 weeks ]
    Change from baseline in dietary intake at 6 and 12 weeks assessed via a Food Frequency Questionnaire (FFQ). An 11-item modified US Alternative Healthy Eating Index (m-AHEI), which is calculated from the results of the FFQ, will be used to quantify the dietary intake changes.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Weight [ Time Frame: baseline, 6 weeks, 12 weeks ]
    Change from baseline in self-reported weight (kg) at 6 and 12 weeks. Weight variation will be combined with height (constant for adults) and also reported as BMI variation (kg/mˆ2).

  2. Physical activity [ Time Frame: baseline, 6 weeks, 12 weeks ]
    Change from baseline in self-reported physical activity (Baecke questionnaire) at 6 and 12 weeks
