McCabe, Marita P.; Ricciardelli, Lina A.
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v32 n2 p105-13 Apr 2003
Examined factors predicting body change strategies to increase weight and muscle mass among adolescent males over an 8-month period. Results for 435 adolescent boys show that extreme body change strategies are predicted by the adoption of more normative body change strategies at an earlier time, and that body change strategies are affected by perceived peer and parent pressure.
