Abstract

The present study investigates the association between obesity and body dissatisfaction in a sample of overweight and obese people. The risk factors of body dissatisfaction tested in the present research include gender, age, degree of obesity, and thin-ideal internalization Methods: In this cross sectional research we collected a convenient sample of 189 overweight and obese research subjects. The sample consists of 99 females and 90 males, the mean body mass index (BMI) of the present sample is 30,6 kg/m2 (SD: 4,42; range 25,0-46,7 kg/m2) Measures include Body Attitude Test, Human Figure Drawings Test, Trait-Anxiety Scale.Results: Females have higher risk for body dissatisfaction than males even when BMI is controlled. Younger age increases the risk of body dissatisfaction only in females. In the first series of multiple regression analyses, BMI explains body dissatisfaction even when age, education and trait anxiety are controlled in the equations, however, there is a slight gender difference since the partial regression coefficients are β = .37, p.
