Pesa, Jacqueline
Journal of School Health, v69 n5 p196-201 May 1999
Used data from the National Longitudinal Adolescent Health Survey to examine whether female adolescents who were attempting weight loss differed from those were not attempting weight loss with respect to several psychosocial factors. Results indicated significant differences between dieters and nondieters. Self-esteem was the strongest contributing factor differentiating the two groups. Implications for school health education are noted. (SM)
