Study 3: Pilot study - Healthy Lifestyle Program
Timeline and development
Study 1: Scoping review of risk behaviours in young men
Aim: provide a broad overview of interventions that have either examined risk behaviours exclusively in young adult male sample populations and those that have reported outcomes stratified by age and/or sex to include young adult males and map the existing literature to date.
Can young men change their lifestyle? A novel way to improve health.

Overweight/obese: 42% vs 35%
Prevalence of substance abuse disorder: 16% vs 10%
Rate of sucicide: 17.7 deaths per 100,000 vs 6.8 deaths per 100,000
Alcohol levels at short term health risk: 68% vs 59%
Tobacco smoking on daily basis: 18% vs 14%
97% of young men did not consume adequate intakes of fruit and veg. (same in women)
Young Australian men vs Young australian women (ABS 2012)
Globally, young men have a higher prevalence of hypertension than young women (13% vs 7%)
The global prevalence of young men with type 2 diabetes is between 2-6%
Cigarette smoking in young men: 38% vs young women: 30%
Mortality from risk behaviours (suicide, motor vehicle accidents and unintentional injuries) in young men: 137 per 100,000 deaths vs young women 49.3 per 100,000
Globally 20% of young men fail to meet national recommendations for physical activity.
Current Alcohol drinker in young men: 85% vs young women 71%.
More than half of the young adult men in the USA are exceeding daily maximum recommended alcohol intakes (classed as 4 drinks in single day for men)
Why do young men undertake risky behaviours?
1. Examine the extent, range and nature of research focusing on risk behaviours in young males
2. Identify the barriers and motivators in adopting healthy eating, engaging in physical activity and achieving and maintaining a healthy weight in young adult males.
3. Explore young males’ preferences for intervention components and delivery medium for a healthy lifestyle program.
4. Determine whether a tailored healthy lifestyle program, developed based on a participatory approach can result in improvements in mental health and well-being, dietary intake and physical activity levels in young adult males aged 18-25.
Plan of research
"Have young men been targeted to change risk behaviours? A scoping review of the literature."
"Using a mixed-methods approach to understanding young adult male’s motivators and barriers to participating in a healthy lifestyle program"
"Pilot study: tailored Healthy Lifestyle Program specific to young adult men (aged 18-25 years)
Can young men change their lifestyle? A novel way to improve health.
The most common study design was randomized controlled trials (62%).
Face-to-face was the most common form of intervention delivery (70%)
Majority were conducted in University settings (46%).
Recommendations for research
Participatory approach and use of appropriate theoretical framework for development
Recruit representative samples
Interventions targeting self harm, poor diet, unsafe driving, tobacco use, drug use, sun exposure, violence and gambling in young men are warranted.
Aims (focus group):
1. Identify the barriers and motivators in adopting healthy eating, engaging in physical activity and achieving and maintaining a healthy weight in young adult males.
2. To determine whether these behaviours are valued and whether young men perceive weight gain to be a problem.
3. Identify young adult male’s motivators and barriers to participating in a healthy lifestyle program.
4. Explore young males’ preferences for intervention components and delivery medium for a healthy lifestyle program.
Lack of skills/knowledge
Lack of time
Girls - "get chicks"
Benefits expected from healthy lifestyle program
social/ make friends
Habit forming i.e. lifetime skills
Preferences for healthy lifestyle program
Develop skills i.e cooking lessons
Individualized and flexible
2-3 sessions per week
n=300 young men in Australia (18-25yr)
Deployed using survey monkey
Gain further understanding of focus group questions
Assess PA level. dietary intake & mental well-being
Healthy Lifestyle Program for young men
