Abstract

A computer-based dietary counseling system was tested by sixty-four volunteers from the Boston area. Most of the patients seemed to benefit from their interaction with the computer, and the two participating nutritionists frequently found that the program was useful as an antecedent to their own one-to-one sessions with the patients.
