dc.description.abstractThis study examined the relationship between disordered eating behaviors and body weight perception among normal weight college women. Additionally, the demographic variables of relationship status and ethnicity were also explored. These objectives were achieved by examining scores on the Eating Attitudes Test and responses about body weight perception, relationship status, and ethnicity. Analysis revealed that overestimation emerged as a significant predictor of disordered eating symptomatology.
