    • Abstract:
      This dissertation provides insight into the relations between time orientation and both eating and exercising behaviour in order to better understand individuals' intertemporal decision making in the health domain and ultimately stimulate healthy eating and exercising behavior. Chapter 1, the general introduction, introduces the societal context that underlies the topic of this dissertation. The definition, conceptualization, and measurement of time orientation, determinants of time orientation, relations between time orientation and behavior, and potential underlying mechanisms of these relations are discussed. A theoretical overview on the relationship between time orientation and eating and exercising behaviour is presented in Chapter 2. Various conceptualizations of time orientation, such as discounting, time perspective, and consideration of future consequences, and ways to measure these concepts are discussed and compared. An overview of the relations between these concepts is also provided. In Chapter 3 it was investigated whether time orientation is behavior-specific for eating and exercising behavior. Two behaviour-specific variants of the Consideration of Future Consequences scale, one for eating behaviour and one for exercising behaviour were analysed. Chapter 4 reports on a study in which time orientation, construal level, general eating and exercising behaviour (matching a high, abstract level of construal) as well as specific eating and exercising preferences (matching a low, concrete level of construal) were measured. In Chapter 5, intertemporal choice experiments that extend the study reported in Chapter 4 are described in two ways - manipulation of the construal level instead of measurement, and an investigation of the effect of this construal level manipulation on actual intertemporal food choice. Chapter 6, the general discussion, an overview is given on the main findings of this dissertation and discuss their theoretical, methodological, and practical implications.
