Planning to Fill the Gap: the Efficacy of Forming Implementation Intentions in Healthy Eating

Using meta-analysis, this paper tests the efficacy of forming implementation intentions to achieve healthy eating goals. To help resolve previous inconsistent findings and provide guidance for future research, this study clarifies the moderation role of the type of intended behavior, promoting versus decreasing, adding the mediator role of goal complexity.
