SOTO G, M. Angélica et al. Body dissatisfaction, search of thinness and malnutrition excess, a descriptive correlational study in a population of students from 13 to 16 years of the Valparaíso city. Rev. chil. nutr. [online]. 2013, vol.40, n.1, pp.10-15. ISSN 0717-7518.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75182013000100001.

Objective: To identify the prevalence ofbody dissatisfaction and search for thinness (ST) of a student population 13 to 16 years old, its correlation with overweight, and gender differences. Subjects and method: To 291 students of 3 coed schools (51% female) the EDI 2 questionnaire was applied to assess body dissatisfaction and ST and their IMC (weight/height2) were obtained. Results: The prevalence of malnutrition by excess reached 27.5 % in the total population. 2.1% of men and 13% of the women presented risk scores related to search for thinness; 11 % of men and 2.,9 % of women presented risk scores related to body dissatisfaction. There were statistically significant gender differences in both items (0.001). The body dissatisfaction was correlated with BMI (Fisher's 0,006). There was no correlation between ST and nutritional status (Fisher's 0.082). Body dissatisfaction and search for thinness was correlated with gender (Fisher's 0,009 - 0,000). Conclusion: Significant indices (prevalence and correlation) of the evaluated factors were found. Women presented increased risk compared to man.
