Overview of Research Program

This research group focuses on behavioral and psychosocial aspects of physical activity and exercise, nutrition and eating behavior, and obesity/weight control. Key research topics include:

1. The study of motivational, self-regulatory, and behavioral predictors of healthful eating, physical activity, and weight control 

2. The use of self-determination theory to understand and influence motivation and self-regulation of energy balance-related behaviors, especially physical activity. 

3. The role of physical activity/exercise behaviors in weight management, namely its association with weight-related outcomes, body image, and psychological well-being.

4. Developing measurement instruments to capture self-regulation, motivation, physical activity/exercise, and eating behaviors, building a national repository available in open and free access.
