DUNO, Maryelin  e  ACOSTA, Edgar. Body image perception among university adolescents. Rev. chil. nutr. [online]. 2019, vol.46, n.5, pp.545-553. ISSN 0717-7518.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75182019000500545.

Adolescents are considered vulnerable to body dissatisfaction (BD) because of the changes they experience. Body image perception and its relationship with socioeconomic stratum (SES), nutritional status (NS), physical activity (PA), physical condition (PC) and diet quality among adolescents was evaluated. The study was descriptive, correlational, and cross sectional; 143 adolescents participated. Perception of body image was evaluated and nutritional, socioeconomic, AF and CF variables were measured. The majority of the adolescents were to the third SES level (37.6%), normal weight (87.4%), inactive (55.2%) and with average adherence to the Mediterranean diet (67.1%). The components of PC and general PC were higher among males (p <0.05). Male subjects had a stronger desire for a greater body volume, while female subjects had a stronger desire for a lower body volume (p< 0.05). BD index correlated with body mass index, components of the CF and the CFg. In conclusion, CI was related to components of PC and general PC in all subjects.
