Archana Gupta, Shobhna Sambyal, Dr. Pragya Khanna

This study was aimed at assessing a correlation between body weight perception with dietary intake and physical activity among female youth of Jammu Region. The study was based on online survey through open end questionnaire. Females in the age group of 15 to 24 years were included in our analysis and the average age of the respondents was 20 years. Most of them [57 %] hailed from urban areas. Education status of maximum respondents [51 %] was undergraduate. Participants completed and submitted online questionnaire. While going through the data it was analysed that maximum female respondents were unable to assess their body weight scientifically but still have a correct perception of their body weight. Most of the respondents were keen to remain thin but did not take much of forced instructions on them regarding physical activity or dietary intake.
