Abstract

Dissatisfaction of body image often makes women unhappy and even leads to various conditions and disorders such as decreased nutritional status, anxiety, and eating disorders. The current research aims to find out the relationship between body image and nutritional knowledge with nutritional status. Analytical Cross-sectional study was conducted to adolescent girls aged 16-18 years in SMA Negeri 1 Bandar in August 2018 with a total sample of 161 people. The samples are selected using proportional stratified random sampling. Data were collected using the Body Shape Questionnaire (BSQ) and nutritional knowledge questionnaire. Chi-Square test and linear regression tests were used with a confidence level of 95% at (α = 0.05). Nutritional status was significantly related to body image and nutritional knowledge (p <0.005). Linear regression analysis showed that the correlation between body image, nutritional knowledge, and nutritional status is quite strong (R = 0.438) with a coefficient of determination of 19.2% (p <0.001). The result shows a significant relationship between body image and nutritional knowledge with nutritional status. It is suggested that nutritional education is needed so that adolescents girls have nutritional knowledge, and their body image distortion can be prevented.
