dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this research was to examine the relationship between eating disorder attitudes and coronary heart disease (CHD) risk factors. Forty female undergraduate students served as subjects. The data collection consisted of an eating disorder attitude survey and a CHD risk factor analysis. The resuls of a multiple regression analysis indicated two variables, drive for thinness and body dissatisfaction, which contribute to the explained variance of CHD risk. T-tesis revealed differences in CHD between the high and low-scoring groups of drive for thinness and body dissatisfaction. It was concluded that drive for thinness and body dissatisfaction contribute to the explained variance in CHD risk, and the high and low-scoring groups of these 2 subscales had significantly different CHD risk levels.
