Introduction: Proper consumption of oil can help to prevent certain diseases. This study aimed to predict healthy behaviors related to oil consumption among housewives based on the theory of planned behavior.
Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted among 160 housewives selected through multi-stratified sampling method in Bandar Abbas, Iran. To collect data, a valid and reliable questionnaires were used. The questionnaire was included three sections: a demographic section, oil consumption pattern and the constructs of the theory of planned behavior. To analyze the data, linear regression analysis was used.
Results: The Results revealed that 59.4% of women consumed liquid oil, while 6.9% of them consumed solid oil. 8.8% of the women never used frying liquid oil and 10% never used cooking liquid oil. Behavioral intention predicted 10% of the behavior. Moreover, all constructs of the theory of planned behavior (perceived behavioral control, attitude and subjective norms) together predicted 32% of the behavior.
Conclusion: This research revealed that solid oil was commonly used by a great number of women. It also showed that they followed unhealthy behaviors in cooking.
