Onset of Disordered Eating Attitudes and Behaviors in Early Adolescence: Interplay of Pubertal Status, Gender, Weight, and Age.
O'Dea, Jennifer A.; Abraham, Suzanne
Adolescence, v34 n136 p671-79 Win 1999
Investigates the interplay of puberty, gender, weight, and age in regard to body image and disordered eating behaviors and attitudes in a sample of early adolescents. Results reveal that after menarche, females had increased personal expectations and were dissatisfied with weight/shape changes. Young males at puberty desired to build up their bodies, believing that appearance was important to their sexual appeal. (Contains 30 references and five tables.) (Author/GCP)
