Body Image Perception and Body Composition
This study measured the relationship between body image perception, body satisfaction, and acculturation. Participants were Hispanic male and female college students who completed questionnaires that measured socio-cultural attitudes towards appearance, personal body happiness, and acculturation in addition to demographic body image perception and satisfaction questions. Participants' body compostion were also measured. It is clear that issues of weight perception and willingness to put health at risk are worth exploring in Hispanics.
