In this regard, interest in reducing meat consumption is on the rise. However, people often do not translate intentions into actual behavior change. To address this intention-behavior gap, we tested the self-regulation strategy of mental contrasting with implementation intentions (MCII). Here, people identify and imagine a desired future and current obstacles standing in its way. They address the obstacles with if-then plans specifying when, where, and how to act differently. In a 5-week randomized controlled experimental study, we compared an information + MCII intervention with an information-only control intervention. As hypothesized, only MCII participants’ intention of reducing their meat consumption was predictive of their actual reduction, while no correspondence between intention and behavior change was found for control participants. Participants with a moderate to strong intention to reduce their meat consumption reduced it more in the MCII than in the control condition. Thus, MCII helped to narrow the intention-behavior gap and supported behavior change for those holding moderate and strong respective intentions.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Gollwitzer, Peter M.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Loy, Laura S.</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Oettingen, Gabriele</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Wieber, Frank</dc:creator> <dc:rights>Attribution 4.0 International</dc:rights> <dcterms:issued>2016-04-29</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2016-05-24T07:08:11Z</dcterms:available> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:title>Supporting Sustainable Food Consumption : Mental Contrasting with Implementation Intentions (MCII) Aligns Intentions and Behavior</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Wieber, Frank</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
