dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to compare members of two separate Texas State University- San Marcos female sports teams (track and field and softball) in regards to their social physique anxiety, eating attitudes,-and nutrition behaviors. The study design was quasi-experimental with 2 independent samples compared according to their responses to questionnaires and a three-day diet record. Results were analyzed with independent- samples t-tests, Multivariate Analysis of Variance (MANOVA), and Pearson correlations. Results of this study indicated that type of sport has significant effects on social physique anxiety, eating attitudes, and actual eating patterns for two teams with opposite views on emphasis of the thin ideal. Results showed unbalanced and exaggerated eating patterns for both sports. Interpreted results and their implications could help improve future understanding of psychosocial and behavioral aspects of disordered eating and harmful eating attitudes in collegiate athletes.
