Dieting Linked to Emotional Eating

Dieting Linked to Emotional Eating | Intuitive Eating | Scoop.it
Intuitive Eating's insight:

Large study on more than 35,000 people found that dieting is linked to higher emotional eating, especially for women.  Peneau S., et al. AJCN June 2013.

Abstract

Background: Unlike other psychological correlates of weight status, emotional eating (EmE) has received relatively limited attention in the literature.

Objectives: We aimed to examine the association between the EmE score and weight status and the influence of sex and dieting on this association.

Design: A total of 8580 men and 27,061 women aged ≥18 y who participated in the NutriNet-Santé cohort study were selected in this cross-sectional analysis. Self-reported weight and height, EmE scores of the revised 21-item version of the Three-Factor Eating Questionnaire, and dieting status data were collected. The relation between EmE and weight status was estimated by using multiple linear and logistic regression models adjusted for sociodemographic and lifestyle factors. Interactions of EmE with sex and dieting history were assessed.

Results: Median EmE scores were greater in women than in men and in former or current dieters than in subjects without a history of dieting. Strong associations appeared between the EmE score and weight status in most categories of sex × dieting status. The strongest associations between EmE and weight status were observed in women, particularly in never dieters [body mass index slope (95% CI): 2.61 (2.43, 2.78); overweight OR (95% CI): 5.06 (4.24, 6.05)].

Conclusions: These observations support the existence of an association between EmE and weight status. The effect modification of sex and dieting on the EmE score and on the association of the EmE score with weight status should be taken into account in obesity prevention.

H&M CEO Says Models Are Too Skinny, Promises Changes

H&M CEO Says Models Are Too Skinny, Promises Changes | Intuitive Eating | Scoop.it
In an industry where thin is always in, the frequently gaunt and underfed faces staring out from the pages of glossy magazines often bear little resemblance to the actual customers and create unattainable ideals for impressionable young girls.
Intuitive Eating's insight:

H&M one of the largest clothing retaliers in the world, hired a normal size model (aka 'plus-size') in an effort move away from the industry's standard of unhealthy thin models.  Let's hope this is the beginning of a new fashion trend that remains.

Intuitive Eating's insight:

Provocative article describes the complexity of obesity. "Today’s priests of obesity prevention proclaim with confidence and authority that they have the answer. So did Bruno Bettelheim in the 1950s, when he blamed autism on mothers with cold personalities. So, for that matter, did the clerics of 18th-century Lisbon, who blamed earthquakes on people’s sinful ways. History is not kind to authorities whose mistaken dogmas cause unnecessary suffering and pointless effort, while ignoring the real causes of trouble. And the history of the obesity era has yet to be written."
