MSP Lecture Series 3: Association of Weight Misperception with Skipping Meals and Cutting-Off Food Among UP Manila Undergraduates
The Manila Studies Program (MSP) Lecture Series for 2019 culminated yesterday, with the research presentation entitled “Association of Weight Misperception with Skipping Meals and Cutting-Off Food Among UP Manila Undergraduates “ by Senior Lecturer Migel Antonio Catalig from the Department of Physical Sciences and Mathematics (DPSM). The research aimed to determine the association of weight misperception with skipping of meals and cutting of food among selected UP Manila students.According to Sr. Lecturer Catalig, the results of his studies showed that CAMP students are less likely to skip meals and that students with more than two days of physical activity are more likely to skip meals. He also said that CAMP and Dentistry students have diet behaviors that are different from CAS. Physical activity of two or more days are associated with skipping meals and cutting off foods. Overestimators of Body Mass Index (BMI) are more likely to cut food.
Asst. Prof. Dorothy DL Jose, Convenor, MSP, thanked CAS Dean Estacio for his usual support on its programs and projects.
