Abstract

The pursuit of thinness among adolescent and young adult females may leave some of them quickly threatening their physiological and psychological wellbeing as the fear of weight gain and possible obesity drives them into maladaptive eating and dieting habits. The intense preoccupation with dieting and weight control among this segment of the population has become so commonplace that it is often viewed as normal behavior and revered by peers who consider themselves less successful at being able to control their weight and shape. Unfortunately, and sometimes tragically, these maladaptive behaviors may inevitably manifest themselves in the form of eating disorders.
