Abstract:

Background: Relation between Sedentary behavior and disordered eating attitudes among young adults need to be addressed to fill a critical gap in public health research.
Aim: Investigating associations between sitting time and disordered eating attitudes in a sample of 101 university students (aged 18-30) using Spearman’s correlation and descriptive statistics.
Methods: Sedentary behavior assessed through the Global Physical Activity Questionnaire (GPAQ), and eating behaviors evaluated using the Disordered Eating Attitude Scale. The study employs a convenience sampling approach and analyzes data with non-parametric statistical procedures.
Results: Moderate negative correlation found between sitting time and disordered eating attitudes. Descriptive statistics highlight central tendencies and variabilities, emphasizing the nuanced relationship between sedentary behavior and eating attitudes.
Conclusion: The study provides valuable insights into the complex dynamics of sedentary behavior and disordered eating attitudes among young adults. The observed negative correlation suggests a potential role of sedentary behavior in shaping attitudes toward food. Findings underscore the need for targeted health interventions considering distinct aspects of eating attitudes in the context of sedentary behavior, contributing to the broader discourse on promoting healthier lifestyles among diverse populations.
