Abstract:
Fat and fiber knowledge, belief, and dietary behavior of 75 registered dietitians (DR's) from the Southern Arizona Dietetic Association and 285 non-RD's from the Arizona population who completed the Western Regional-182's Far and Fiber survey were examined. Stepwise multiple regression model revealed those most likely to consume a diet low in fat and high in fiber were young to middle-aged married, well-educated, well-paid females. When competed with non-RD's, RD's were more willing to make appropriate dietary changes and more influenced by their health and weight concerns and by time factors. Further, RD's demonstrated higher knowledge levels, agreed less with belief statements, and practiced better dietary behavior. While a positive relationship was found between knowledge and behavior, negative relationships were discovered between knowledge and beliefs and behavior. RD knowledge and beliefs were significant predictors of dietary behavior. The RD status factor was a positive predictor of behavior and beliefs.
