Background: The purpose of this study was to compare the levels of self-control and emotion regulation strategies among college students with high and normal body mass index (BMI).
Materials and Methods: The present cross-sectional causal-descriptive study was conducted on female students with a high BMI at the Azad University of Roudehen, Iran, during the academic year of 2018-2019. The sample size was selected by the convenience sampling method (50 girls with high BMI and 50 girls with normal body weight). The data were collected using the self-control scale and the Emotion Regulation Questionnaire. Data analysis was performed in SPSS software (version 23) by ANOVA and t-test.
Results: According to the results, students with high BMI had lower levels of self-control and positive emotional regulation, compared to those with normal BMI. Moreover, the individuals with high BMI had a higher level of negative emotional regulation, compared to those with normal BMI.
Conclusion: Strategies for emotion regulation are very important for self-control, eating styles, and BMI. It is, therefore, suggested to apply this intervention for the treatment of obesity.
