Chapter 12 provides the script for Project Health, which uses dissonance and persuasion principles to get people to make small, gradual changes toward a healthy lifestyle. Each session starts with a voluntary commitment to participate. Sessions include discussions of society's promotion of overeating through fast food and marketing, the costs of obesity, and the importance of a healthy diet. Each session includes a section where each participant is asked to commit to making or maintaining small healthy changes to their diet and activity level, which are gradually increased each week; progress in making these healthy changes are shared with the group. Role-plays and writing exercises are incorporated into each session to get participants to adopt a healthy lifestyle stance, and confront pressures from their peers and family that arise.
