Abstract

This portfolio has three parts:
Part one is a systematic literature review in which the theoretical, conceptual and empirical literature relating to the impact of initial weight-related expectations on weight-loss and related outcomes is explored.
Part two is an empirical paper exploring the relationships between self-efficacy and illness cognitions with the outcome variables of weight-loss, physical and mental health status, and individual perception of outcome.
Part three is comprised of the appendices.
