A One-way ANOVA analysis and Multiple Regression Analysis were used to analyze the data.

There were not significant in eating attitudes between female students whose body perception was slender and thin. 3.Significant and negative correlation were found between BE-Appearance and BE-Weight (p < .01) 4.For the predictive abilities, all predictors together accounted for 21 percent of the variance in predicting eating attitudes.
