Abstract

Background: The dissatisfaction of body image and eating disorders are considered to be one of the common problems in adulthood or even in the earlier stage of life especially among athletes. This research has been carried out with the aim of evaluating the relationship between eating disorders and body image in athletes and non-athlete students in Qazvin University of Medical Sciences. Method: 576 students include: 226 athletes students, 350 non-athletes students (293 female students and 283 male students) of the University of Medical Sciences were selected randomly-class. To collect information from the individual questionnaire, eating attitudes test(EAT-26), Multidimensional Body-Self Relations Questionnaire (MBSRQ) were used. Results: The eating disorders rate in the athlete students and non-athlete students was estimated to be 11.5 % and 11.2% respectively and anorexia nervosa was found to be more dominant than bulimia nervosa in both groups. The students who had normal BMI enjoyed better from body image and suffered less from eating disorder (p<0.05). Our findings suggest that there was neither a reasonable relationship between the variables of age, educational stage and even gender with eating disorders or body image and not a reasonable relationship between eating disorder and body image. Conclusion: The eating disorders and inappropriate body image among both groups of athlete students and non-athlete students was comparatively common and BMI was recognized as the main determining factor of eating disorders. Considering a higher rate of eating disorder among male students, therefore, more research in this group is recommended. Keywords: Eating Disorders. Body Images. Athlete Students. Non-Athlete Students
