Population-based food and nutrition studies consistently demonstrate that women are significantly more likely than men to comply with dietary guideline recommendations. To date however, the precise reasons for this difference are not clear. This paper examines this issue using data collected from a representative sample of men and women (n=330) living in Brisbane City (Australia). A general linear modelling analysis shows that women's greater compliance with dietary guideline food behaviors is due in part to their greater liking for the taste of healthy foods, they were more likely to believe that dietary guideline food was better for their health, and they were more knowledgeable about food and nutrition. Women were also more likely to report a heightened concern about their physical and personal appearance, although this factor made no independent contribution to dietary guideline compliance. The model developed in this study explained approximately 30 percent of the variation in food behavior. At the study's completion, men and women still differed significantly in their food behaviors, indicating that other important explanatory factors remain to be identified
