We explore if competing demands measured in terms of market and non-market activities impact on dieters’ resolve to eat healthily. The analysis uses data from 2007 and 2009 of the Household Income and Labour Dynamics of Australia (HILDA) survey. The estimation strategy employs a random effects maximum likelihood estimator. For women, being unemployed is negatively associated with healthy eating whereas having young children is positively associated with healthy eating. For both genders, being divorced is negatively associated with healthy eating. Working in higher socioeconomic occupations is positively associated with healthy eating.
