Gender Differences and Dieting Trends among College Students
Women college students are more likely than men to diet or try other weight-loss practices, while men who attempt weight loss typically try exercise rather than dieting, according to researchers at the University of Nebraska.

The study found differences between men and women related to dieting trends and sources of nutrition knowledge and beliefs. For example, a significantly larger percentage of women than men reported they had tried low-fat diets (19.3 percent vs. 7.6 percent), low-carbohydrate diets (15.5 percent vs. 10 percent) and vegetarian diets (4.4 percent vs. 0 percent). Other findings include:

  • More men than women reported never having tried a diet (79.1 percent vs. 65.6 percent).
  • More women than men obtained most of their nutrition information from family (58 percent vs. 40 percent) and magazines and newspapers (43.1 percent vs. 30.5 percent).
  • More women than men agreed that they eat too much sugar (59.7 percent vs. 41.9 percent); that it is important to limit carbohydrate consumption (46.4 percent vs. 27.6 percent); that it is important to limit fats to lose weight (71.7 percent vs. 52.4 percent) and that they need to lose weight (57.4 percent vs. 28.6 percent).

According to the researchers: "These findings are in agreement with reports of women's tendency to hold stronger beliefs related to nutrition than men. Though men have some sensitivity to body fat, women are much more sensitive."

Virtually all participants in the study (94.4 percent) agreed that it is important to eat a variety of foods for good health. Three quarters said they believe nutritional content of foods is important and that "
