Objective (CSR# 170788433822)Delay discounting, or the tendency to select smaller, more immediate rewards over large, but delayed rewards, is a factor that is related to overweight and obesity, poor diet, and sedentary activity. One method for reducing delay discounting is episodic future thinking, which orients people to think about positive events that will happen in their future. The proposed study will investigate the efficacy of an episodic future thinking intervention to increase healthy eating, thus reducing risk of overweight, obesity, and chronic disease.
