Abstract: Body weight dissatisfaction (BWD) among adolescents may be a predictor of adoption of health-risk behaviors. The study aimed to assess the gendered association between two forms of BWD (feeling underweight/overweight) and cardiovascular health-risk behaviors among Brazilian adolescents. This cross-sectional study used data from the National Study of Cardiovascular Risks in Adolescents (ERICA) in Brazil, including 71,740 adolescents aged 12–17 years. BWD was defined as satisfied, dissatisfied feeling underweigh… Show more

“…The answer "as I expect" was defined as "body weight satisfaction," and the answers of "a little above than I would like" and "much above than I would like" as "dissatisfied due to overweight." This classification method was previously used by other investigators (Duarte et al, 2020;Jampel et al, 2016;Jiang et al, 2014;Ramseyer Winter et al, 2017).…”

“…Health risk behaviors are considered individual and identifiable behaviors that can have potential for harmful health effects (Rodriguez Añez et al, 2008). Among adolescents, the most prevalent risk behaviors include alcohol abuse (Duarte et al, 2020), smoking (Jiang et al, 2014; Ramseyer Winter et al, 2017) and eating disorders (Albuquerque et al, 2021). Other health risk behaviors were described as present in the adolescent population, including (a) unsafe sexual behavior, which is related to unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases (Beksinska et al, 2020); and (b) not using seatbelts, which may be associated with lower chances of survival in traffic accidents (Hezaveh & Cherry, 2019).…”

“…Although the associations between body image concern and substance use have been described previously [30,31], reports about the Brazilian adolescent population are still scarce [32][33][34], given the dynamics of the social environment and possible associations with new factors. Hence, the aim of this study was to assess the association between weight misperception and substance use (smoking and alcohol) in a national representative sample of normal weight Brazilian adolescents.…”
