Hatice Kumcağız

Abstract


The aim of this study is to examine the relationship between quality of life and eating attitudes of adolescents. This
study was designed as a correlational study. Participants were 640 voluntarily participating 15-18 years old students
studying at public high schools in Samsun, Turkey. Data was collected with the Quality of Life Scale for Children
and Eating Attitudes Test. In the data analysis process, descriptive analysis and pearson correlation analysis for the
relationship between life quality and eating attitudes were used. Simple linear regression analysis was also employed
to see whether life quality predicts eating attitude scores. According to the study findings, there was a negative and
statistically weak relationship between life quality and eating attitudes. Also, it was revealed that adolescents’ quality
of life scores predicted their eating attitude scores. The study results were discussed with previous literature.
