The Relation of Sociocultural Factors to Eating Attitudes and Behaviors among Middle School Girls.
Levine, Michael P.; And Others
Journal of Early Adolescence, v14 n4 p471-90 Nov 1994
Investigated young girls' eating behavior, body satisfaction, weight management, and the cues taken from family, peers, and magazines. Found that a majority received a message from fashion magazines and peers or family that being slender is important and attainable through dieting, indicating that some young girls live under intense weight and body-shape concerns that produce disordered eating behavior.
