Eating Competence and Gender Identity are significantly associated with Weight-and-Body Shame-and-Guilt, Eating Concerns, and Weight Satisfaction in Undergraduate Students

This study, which surveyed a large sample of undergraduates at the University of Washington, determined that Eating Competence and Gender Identity are significantly associated with: Weight-and-Body Shame-and-Guilt, Weight Satisfaction, and Eating Concerns. These associations demonstrate the emotional components of food, eating behaviors, and body-related perceptions, and may be helpful in future interventions aimed at improving these characteristics in undergraduates.
