The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of the Stoplight Diet on triglyceride (TO) levels. Additionally, this study investigated the efficacy by mode of intervention (Usual Care MOVE!, ASPIRE-Group, ASPIRE-Phone). Specifically, this study examined the percent change in TO levels by: (a) percent change in the consumption of "red" foods and (b) mode of intervention (Usual Care MOVE!, ASPIRE-Group, ASPIRE-Phone).
In this study, 84 purposely selected participant log books were collected from the three ASPIRE-VA study groups: Usual Care MOVE!, ASPIRE-Group, and ASPIRE-Phone. Among those selected, 18 were excluded from this study due to incomplete meal records (3 or more entire days missing) or absent TO measurements, thus resulting in a total of 66 participants who were analyzed; 27 from ASPIRE-Phone, 22 from ASPIRE-Group, and 17 from Usual Care MOVE!. Data on participants' TO levels and dietary intake of red foods was analyzed at baseline and 3 months which was then coded and entered into SPSS (version 20.0, 2012).
