Source: OAI


En: Revista de Psicodidáctica Bilbao 2003, n.15-16 ; p. 65-74 Los Trastornos de Conducta Alimentaria (TCA) (anorexia, bulimia, vigorexia, ortorexia) se encuentran estrechamente relacionados, como causa y/o efecto, con las modificaciones de la imagen corporal. Por ello la distorsión de ésta es considerada como un criterio de diagnóstico en los TCA. Conocida esta relación se han estudiado diferentes aspectos relacionados con la imagen corporal en jóvenes vascos. Los datos que se ofrecen muestran la relevancia que los jóvenes aportan a la imagen corporal y su valor como factor predisponenete, en muchos casos, a los Trastornos de Conducta Alimentaria (TCA)

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of the study is to determine the number of participants affected exercise addiction, to relate sociodemographic indicators to high levels of reverser anorexia, and to find predictive variables to explain a percentage of the variable under examination. The participants are 154 bodybuilders (mean age 24.97 years, ± 6.90), divided into two age groups (under 30 and over 30 years) and four locations in different numbers of inhabitants. The instruments used are the Adonis Scale to assess reverse anorexia, the questionnaire of self-concept form 5 (AF5) and state/trait anxiety scale (STAI). A high percentage of subjects in the sample (62.8%) show moderate pathological concern. We have found significant differences in scores of reverse anorexia depending on the variable of age, previous negative experiences, place of residence, and number of hours devoted to exercising. Also, through a multiple regression study, we have determined the variables that best predict exercise addiction (Anxiety State, weekly hours in the gym and Academic-labor dimension AF5).

    ABSTRACT: Introduction: Nowadays, in developed countries there are standards of beauty based on pro-thin models, which are internalized by adolescents and young people especially in the case of women, assuming it as risk factor for developing changes in body image and perception. Objective: To analyze the current state of research in relation to body image, the sociodemographic variables that influence it, the relationship between body composition, conducting diets, eating disorders, sports and intervention programs and prevention, and the body image. Methods: It was searched in Medline, ISI Web of Knowledge and Dialnet as well as a manual search among the references of selected studies and in different libraries. Results and discussion: A increased socio-cultural influence is associated with a greater perception of body fat, greater body image dissatisfaction and lower self assessment of overall fitness. This leads to a lot of teenagers and young adults to abuse to the restrictive diets and to suffer eating disorders. Numerous studies have analyzed the relationship between sports practice with body image disturbance; there are conflictive results. Moreover it is necessary to design objective tools to detect changes and enhance the design of prevention and intervention programs in order to avoid distortion of body image, especially in those age ranges where the population is more vulnerable to this phenomenon. Conclusions: The excessive current preocupation about body image has resulted in the realization of diets and changes as eating disorders. There are other factors that influence body image and perception as the realization of physical exercise, although the results about the relationship between these factors are contradictory. Therefore, further work is needed on the issue by creating tools to detect changes and enhance the design of prevention and intervention programs.

    ABSTRACT: The prevalence of diseases related to eating behaviour disorders has increased among adolescents. The objective of this study is to analyse the satisfaction with body weight of schoolchildren as regards their body mass index and the strategies used to control the diet. A total of 1197 students from secondary education (12-18 years) answered a questionnaire on eating habits and body weight control. Their weight and height was measured and body mass index was calculated. More than two-thirds (68.1%) of students who had an adequate BMI were satisfied with their weight. Greater dissatisfaction with the weight is associated with overweight (OR=10.23) and obesity (OR=16.60). Students with overweight are on a diet consulting an expert such as a physician or even the family, whereas among schoolchildren with normal weight there is a large percentage on a diet on their own. A 13.87% of the schoolchildren have been undertaken Compensatory activities before excessive eating has been undertaken by 13.87% of the schoolchildren. An overweight BMI is associated, with more than twice the risk (OR>2.00), with the use of measures such as physical activity, vomiting, or fasting to compensate an excessive intake. Overweight and obese schoolchildren are more likely to be dissatisfied with their body, and are more likely to use ploys such as vomiting, in order to compensate for the excess intake.
