To combat obesity, it is necessary to evaluate the change in eating habits and physical activity in the population. The aim of this paper is to present psychological instruments developed for application in the Mexican population. We used current theories of behavior change and updated nutrition recommendations for the development of questionnaires and psychological instruments that assess behavioral change associated with obesity. Instruments were developed to assess fruit and vegetable consumption, physical activity, consumption of low fat milk and pure water. The instruments can become a key measurement tool for health professionals dedicated to weight control in Mexico.

Key words: weight control, habits, assessment, test.
