The efficacy of 2 computer-based programs was tested with Latina college women (N= 64). Compared with participants in the control group, intervention participants improved their motivation to eat fruits and vegetables (F&V; p= .042) and to participate in physical activity (p= .023) and significantly increased their F&V intake (pre- to posttest, p < .001; pre-follow-up, p= .002). Body dissatisfaction improved at a trend level (p= .055). Some modest effects of computer-based programs were found.
