ZUNIGA-JARA, Sergio; PIZARRO-DIAZ, Roberto; ESCUDERO-LOPEZ, María E.  e  HONORES-MARIN, Guillermo. Academic Performance and Eating Behavior of University Students. Form. Univ. [online]. 2018, vol.11, n.2, pp.57-64. ISSN 0718-5006.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-50062018000200057.

This paper presents the results of a cross-sectional research that analyzed the relationship between risky dietary behaviors and academic achievement in university students. A survey was applied to students from the University Católica del Norte (Coquimbo-Chile), and measurements were made of their body mass index. The results of the study suggest that students with higher vulnerability to sensitivity to the reward presented higher levels of overeating, or tendency to binge eating. In addition, these students had higher levels of preferences for fatty and sweet foods. These constructs proved to be determinants of a higher body mass index, and a lower academic performance. The results of the study suggest that strategies to promote healthy eating in college students with vulnerability to reward sensitivity, must be more effective in improving overall academic performance.

Palavras-chave : sensitivity to reward; overeating; academic performance; structural equations; food preferences.
