 Results: Beverage and hydrogenated oil consumption decreased and fruits and vegetables increased in workers and staff of intervention area more than reference area (p<0.003). Non-hydrogenated oils usage increased in workers of intervention area more than reference area but for the office staff increase was significantly more in reference than intervention areas (p<0.001). Nut usage significantly increased only in workers of intervention area (p<0.001). Poultry consumption significantly increased in workers and staff of reference more than intervention society (p=0.04). Use of fish showed no significant difference in workers and staff of both areas (p>0.27). Compare to reference society fast food consumption in office staff of intervention society was increased (p<0.001).
