Publication type: Research.

In a nutshell: Using data from the Growing Up Today Study, this paper examined whether body satisfaction was associated with BMI change and if it protected against the development of binge eating amongst overweight and obese adolescent girls. The authors found that body satisfaction may well protect against excessive weight gain and binge eating, recommending that this issue be addressed in obesity and eating disorder prevention programmes.
