Dietary attitudes can only be weakly linked with behaviour (e.g. Anderson & Hunt, 1992; Dittus, Hillers & Beerman, 1995; Margetts et al., 1997) For alcohol, specific outcome expectancies - what people expect to happen when they drink - are better predictors of drinking behaviour than general attitudes (see Jones, Corbin & Fromme, 2001, for review). Work on nutritional expectancies has mainly focused on taste and other sensory properties (see Bunting 2001, for review, also Cooner & Booth, 1992; Cardello, 1995; Cardello & Sawyer, 1992). The theory of reasoned actiion/theory of planned behaviour can predict food choice (see Axelson et al., 1985; Bunting 2001). However, for ingestive behavious, outcome expectancies might be an improved substitute for attitudes in this theory, as will be explained.
