|発表テーマ||A study on body mass index and nutrition for female university students in Tokyo|
|発表学会名||Asian Congress of Nutrition 2019|
|概要||In Japan, admiration among young women for thin figures has led to them dieting,
having an unbalanced diet, skipping meals, and acquiring other inappropriate dietary habits.According to the National Health and Nutrition Survey conducted in Japan in the year 2017 (Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare,2017), 21.7 % of women in their twenties are underweight. The subjects included 45 female university students in Tokyo. Conclusions: We believe the fact that there were no obese students in this cohort and none of the students regularly exercised and still exhibited only average physiques can be attributed to their dietary habits, which resulted in a decreased physical strength. The decrease in physical strength, in particular, contributes to the issue of whether or not a person regularly exercise. We would also like to see improved dietary habits as part of these efforts.
