dc.description.abstractLifestyle behaviours such as physical inactivity and unhealthy eating are associated with obesity and increased health risks including cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer. This review explored previous research into the barriers which may be preventing people from adopting a healthier lifestyle. These barriers could generally be categorised into four major themes: culture; social factors; environment; and personal factors. There appears to be a current understanding of the types of barriers that exist. However there is a gap in research into how to motivate people and overcome perceived or actual barriers, so that future public health interventions can have greater impact and encourage adoption and maintenance of physical activity and healthy eating.
