DiBartolo, Patricia Marten; Shaffer, Carey
Journal of Sport & Exercise Psychology, v24 n1 p33-41 2002
Examined eating attitudes, body satisfaction, reasons for exercise, and psychological wellbeing among female nonathletes and college athletes. Data from participant surveys revealed less eating disorder symptomatology and more healthy psychological functioning among athletes, suggesting that female athletic involvement could be associated with healthy eating and psychological functioning.
