Title

ASSESSMENT OF EATING BEHAVIOUR AMONG YOUNG ADULTS BETWEEN 20-30 YEARS IN MUMBAI CITY

Abstract

Today’s youth is tomorrow’s parents and role models. Hence, it is important to monitor food habits and ensure that healthy eating practices are followed. This study was undertaken to assess the eating behavior among young adults between 20 - 30 years in Mumbai and to compare the dietary habits of young men and women. Negative emotions have been associated with either an increased or a decreased food intake. Intense emotions tend to inhibit rather than stimulate food intake. Physiologic adaptations to negative emotions prepare for a fight-or-flight response including bloodstream glucose release that, in turn, suppresses feelings of hunger. The samples were selected by purposive sampling. 30 Male and 30 Female subjects between 20 – 30 years of age residing in Mumbai were selected as the subjects. The subjects were administered the Adult Eating Behavior Questionnaire (AEBQ) and Food Frequency Questionnaire through a Google Form Survey. The adult Eating Behaviour Questionnaire showed that hunger was the most prominent trait in both the genders in the food approach subscale. Under the food avoidance subscale, Emotional under-eating was reported the highest by both genders. Food fussiness was another common form of avoiding food, followed by slowness in eating. Emotional overeating was also an important eating behavior in food approach behavior amongst the male and female subjects. Though, emotional overeating was associated more with males than females.
