No Intervention: Control Group
Control participants will be paid for assessments. They will receive study newsletters and a pedometer with advice after the final follow-up visit.
Active Comparator: Intervention Group
Intervention participants will receive 4 weekly newsletters, a pedometer with walking advice, and twice daily fruit/vegetable snacks during weekdays.
Behavioral: Diet/Physical Activity
Diet/Physical Activity Intervention
- Automated Self-Administered 24-Hour Dietary Recall: Fruit/Vegetable, Cups [ Time Frame: 4 weeks post-enrollment ]
- Accelerometer-Measured Physical Activity: Moderate to Vigorous Intensity Physical Activity [ Time Frame: Daily over 4 weeks (repeated measures analysis; day 15 excluded because accelerometers were replaced with newly charged accelerometers) ]Linear Mixed Model (LMM) methods were used to evaluate differences in daily accelerometer-measured MVPA measured over a 28-day period using SAS version 9.4. Daily accelerometer measured activity was NOT averaged or summarized into a single variable. Rather, daily activity summaries over 28 days were compared between the intervention and control group (see Kendzor et al., 2017, Journal of Physical ACtivity and Health).
