Abstract

Objective: i) perform the translation to Portuguese and validation of the Three Factor Eating Questionnaire (TFEQ-51) and its reduced versions (TFEQ-18 and TFEQ-21) for a sample of brazilian university students and ii) determine the contribution of body dissatisfaction and sociodemographic variables and learning in the eating behavior of college students. Methods: This was an observational transversal study. Will be invited to all students enrolled in undergraduate courses in the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences (n = 430) and the College of Letters and Science, Universidade Estadual Paulista - UNESP, Araraquara campus (n=2.700). To characterize the sample will be lifted demographic and academic information. The weight (kg) and height (m) self-referred will be used for computation the Body Mass Index (kg/m2). To assess eat behavior is used The Three Factor Eating Questionnaire - TFEQ. Dissatisfaction with body image will be assessed by the scale silhouettes. Face validity and content will be performed. The construct validity of the TFEQ be estimated using the factorial, convergent and discriminant validity. Confirmatory factor analysis will be performed using the matrix of polychoric correlations. The stability of the models is assessed by analysis multi-group. Convergent validity will be assessed by the Average Variance Extracted (AVE) and Composite Reliability (CC). The discriminant validity is estimated by correlation analysis. Internal consistency will be calculated using the Cronbach's alpha. To estimate the contribution of body dissatisfaction and demographic and academic variables in a structural model eating behavior will be elaborated. (AU)
