Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The clustering of diet and other lifestyle behaviors and their psychosocial correlates were examined among 455 Latino and African American men in the U.S. Southeast. Men were recruited by male community health workers and surveys were self-administered in a group format. Latino men were younger, less educated, and more likely to be employed than African American men and reported a lower household income and larger household size. Fruit and vegetable consumption was associated with physical activity (p < or = .001). A more positive attitude toward health was associated with meeting vegetable dietary guidelines (p < or = .05) and consuming fast food less frequently (p < or = .01). Active coping was associated with meeting fruit and vegetable dietary guidelines (p < or = .01 and p < or = .001, respectively), and avoidant coping was associated with greater fast-food consumption (p < or = .001). Latino fast-food consumption was associated with binge drinking (p < or = .001). This research provides evidence for tailoring dietary intervention for men of color.
