  • About the Edition

    This qualitative inquiry uses life history approach for exploring narratives related to body weight, eating, and dieting in the interviews of 12 adolescent girls, ages 12 to 14. Six major categories emerged in a theme analysis of the interview data: dieting, eating, health, weight, messages, and contradictions. Results suggest that girls might be more sensitive to anti-dieting and positive health messages and more resilient to weight-related pressures than it is suggested by existing research. Girls also seemed to internalize contradictory messages to which they have been exposed in their social environment, such as stating that looks do not matter concurrently with espousing the benefits of adhering to the thin ideal. This inquiry has implications for health promotion in terms of messages that are likely to make a difference in the girls" attitudes and behaviours as well as for the prevention of unhealthy weight control behaviours.
