Abstract

Introducing a healthy lifestyle among young adults enrolled at higher learning institutions via health promotion is best to improve health. This study investigates the effects of lifestyle modification intervention programs (LMIP) on perceived benefit-barrier behaviour, self-efficacy, health-promoting lifestyle behaviour, and MetS parameter. This two-phase study: cross-sectional and two-arm randomized controlled trial involved 124 young adults who full-fill the criteria randomly assigned either intervention or control groups. The intervention group will receive LMIP, while the controlled group will receive an information booklet. Data will be collected at four-time points and analyzed using a mixed-design analysis of variance (ANOVA).
