The sample consisted of 350 (227 females and 123 males) university students in Tehran in the academic year 2021 who were selected by convenience sampling method and completed the scale of change in behaviors related to lifestyle. Psychometric properties of the scale were assessed by confirmatory factor analysis, and internal consistency (Cronbach's alpha) using R software version 4.1.
Results: The single-factor structure of the change in lifestyle-related behaviors scale was investigated and confirmed (CFI=0.82, RMSEA=0.07). Also, Cronbach's alpha coefficient for the scale of change in lifestyle-related behaviors was 0.92.
