|Abstract:||Advances in the medical and technological field have greatly extended the life-expectancy of individuals with chronic conditions. However, such individuals may still experience difficulties in various domains such as in adjusting to their condition and in adhering to a recommended treatment regimen. Hence, one potential role of research on health perspectives is to provide information on factors which contribute to the favorable management of a chronic condition. This paper will utilize Leventhal’s self-regulation model1 in order to explain plausible cognitive factors that may have an influence on adherence to a diet regimen.|
