Disordered Eating and Weight Control among Adolescent Female Athletes and Performance Squad Members.
Taub, Diane E.; Blinde, Elaine M.
Journal of Adolescent Research, v9 n4 p483-97 Oct 1994
Adolescents and individuals participating in activities that emphasize body shape and control have been identified as risk groups for eating disorders. A study sought to determine whether certain groups of adolescent females are more vulnerable to disordered eating patterns or usage of pathogenic weight control techniques. Involvement in organized activity contexts did not differentiate adolescents most at risk. (TJQ)
