Objective: To examine physical activity and the affinity for food among high school and college students. Methods: A questionnaire designed to assess physical activity, eating frequency, weight status, and psychological affinity for food was administered to high school and college students. Results: As eating-restraint scores increased, weight classification and weight dissatisfaction significantly increased for females. Almost all of the psychological variables were significant among all the groups. Conclusion: Many of the students were discontent with their weight, attempted to avoid food, viewed food as a temptation, and occasionally splurged to produce cheer.
