Eating Disorders, Exercise Dependence and Body Image Dissatisfaction in Female Age Group Ironman Triathletes

Eating Disorders, Exercise Dependence and Body Image Dissatisfaction in Female Age Group Ironman Triathletes

The purpose of this study was to investigate the prevalence of eating disorders, body image dissatisfaction and exercise dependency in female age group Ironman triathletes. A cross sectional examination was performed to determine whether the difference between preferred or aversive body type (somatotype), was associated with more prevalent eating disorder, body image dissatisfaction, and exercise addiction. Relationships between preferred/aversive somatotype and eating disorders, body image dissatisfaction and exercise dependency were explored. Data was collected from female age-group triathletes at the 2012 Ironman Arizona Triathlon. Body image dissatisfaction, eating disorders and exercise dependency were assessed via electronic capture questionnaires.
