Dr. Ishwar Singh Malik, Meenu
Investigators evaluated eating disorders among female individual and team game players having sample of 100 female players out of which 60 were individual game and 40 were team game players, undergoing diploma in B.P.ED, and C.P.ED and M.P.ED courses from K.U.K University Kurukshetra, M.D.U University Rohtak and C.D.L.U University Sirsa. Eating Attitudes Test (EAT-26) (Garner et al. 1982) was used to measure disordered eating attitudes and behaviour of the subjects. Body mass index (BMI) of all the subjects was determined by dividing body weight in kilogram by the square of height in meters. To compare the female individual and team game players on eating behaviour and body mass index (BMI), t-test was employed. Results revealed that female individual and female team game players were having almost similar eating disorders on dieting, oral control, bulimia and eating attitudes. Female individual game players were having greater body mass index (BMI) as compared to their team game counterparts. Both female individual and team game players were having normal body mass index (BMI).
