dc.description.abstractGrowing obesity rates have become a topic of great interest. Previous studies have examined self-regulation as a method to reduce weight gain. Young adults are especially at risk for weight gain and the negative health risks associated with obesity. The aim of the current study was to assess whether there were differences in self-regulation of eating behaviors among university students of different weight status. I found overweight and obese university students self-reported they try to recruit others to support their eating plan at greater frequency than underweight and normal weight university students. Future interventions aimed at addressing weight gain in young adults should take these findings into account.en_US
