|概要||Aim: For Japanese women, weight is an important issue since obesity and anorexia are increasing. Therefore, for establishing a dietary education program, we need to grasp the current situation to analyze dietary intake, body mass index, and complaints among young females.
Results: A total of 423 women were recruited with an average body mass index ± standard deviation of 20.7 ± 2.4. The distributions of the body mass index <18.5, 18.5≦body mass index≧19.9, and body mass index≧25.0 were 15.6%, 26.6%, and 5.0%, respectively. The average number of complaints was 2.8 per subject. In the mentally alert group, consumption of calcium, potassium, magnesium, and dietary fiber at breakfast (p<0.01), energy intake at breakfast, iron intake at dinner, as well as consumption of potassium, calcium, and magnesium during the day (p<0.05) were significant.
