Abstract

Dieting and body dissatisfaction are highly prevalent amongst young women. In this study, dietary restraint, disinhibited eating, eating attitudes and body satisfaction were compared in elderly (ES) and young (YS) normal weight women. Dietary restraint and eating attitudes were similar across age groups. Differences between current body weight anddesired body weight were equivalent for both age groups (ES, M = 10.8, SEM = 1.8 lb; YS, M = 11.3, SEM = 1.2 lb), although young women (Body Shape Questionnaire, BSQ, M = 78.5, SEM = 5.8) reported significantly greater dissatisfaction with their bodies than the elderly (BSQ, M =61.7, SEM = 2.9). Of the elderly who had dieted, the majority had dieted five times or less, had started dieting between the ages of 40 and50 years, and very few had dieted in their teens or twenties (< 8 percent). Despite normal weight status, desire to lose weight and attempts to achieve this are experienced by young and old alike.
