Abstract [en]

In educational health interventions that target life-style related behavior, a common focus is on diet and physical activity. Diet and physical activity can be regarded as gendered concepts in so far that the activities (to eat, to exercise) concern behaviors that are permeated by notions of what is considered to be masculine and feminine behavior. Eating/choosing food and exercising/choosing forms of exercise are highly influenced by norms and social mores, and, reciprocally, also educate norms and mores. Diet and physical activity are also two of the most common, every-day modes of shaping our bodies: through diet, to maintain, gain or lose weight, and through physical activity, to maintain, gain (build muscles) or lose weight. Normative perceptions of body shape, appearance and behavior may be informally prescribed in discourses of “the healthy body”. The goal of this paper is to analyze gender aspects of ‘healthy body’ discourses as they might appear in an educational health intervention targeting diet. Based on ethnographic data from a pilot-study this paper explores questions of whether, and how, these notions may influence discourses of un-/healthy bodies in educational health interventions targeting participants’ diet.
