Prevalence of Unhealthy Diet Patterns among Kuwaiti Women : Implications for Overweight and Obese .

Auther : Dr. Ahmad R. AL-Lafi

     The main objective of this study is to determine the prevalence of unhealthy eating patterns among a sample of overweight and obese Kuwaiti female adults. Data were collected by using a questionnaire posted online during 1 September to 31 December 2011. Data represents 944 women of ages from 18 to 59 years and BMI range of 15.1-70.8. The major unhealthy eating patterns prevalent in Kuwaiti women were meal skipper (49%), hearty portioner (47%), night nibbler (38%), steady snacker (36%), swing eater (32%), convenient dinner (29%) and fruitless feaster (27%). Hearty portion and night nibbler were found to be more prevalent in obese women. In conclusion, eating patterns such as skipping meals and eating large portions were more prevalent in obese women than their non-obese counterparts which may have contributed to their adiposity.
