Guinn, Bobby; Jorgensen, Layne; Semper, Tom; Vincent, Vern
American Journal of Health Education, v33 n3 p173-77 May-Jun 2002
Investigated the contribution of body size, self-esteem, age, mainstream acculturation, and athletic status to concern or preoccupation about weight among female Mexican American adolescents. Students had low acculturation, high body fatness, and moderate self-esteem. There was little difference between athletes and non-athletes. Greater body size and self-esteem were the strongest predictors of weight preoccupation. (SM)
