Ase Study For Health and Addictive Behaviour Psychology
Adam is a 35 year-old mechanic who lives with his wife and two year-old son in Croydon and was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes nine months ago. He is overweight and has a poor diet which is probably what has led to him to becoming ill. He attends GP appointments regularly to monitor his condition and his GP recommended that Adam change his diet (which is mainly made up of convenience foods) and to exercise more in order to lose weight. If he does this he may be able to manage his diabetes without needing to take insulin. However, since this recommendation, Adam has not lost any weight and his GP suspects that Adam is not exercising, although he claims to have changed his eating habits and is walking to work every day instead of taking the car.
