LIMA, Nádia Laguárdia de; ROSA, Carla de Oliveira Barbosa  e  ROSA, José Francisco Vilela. Identification of factors of predisposition for eating disorders: anorexia and bulimia in adolescents of Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2012, vol.12, n.2, pp. 360-378. ISSN 1808-4281.

This study aims at presenting the result of an interdisciplinary research that tried to identify the predisposing factors to eating disorders, specifically anorexia and bulimia in female adolescents in Belo Horizonte/MG.  A cross-sectional research method was used in this study with simple random samples. We interviewed 227 female adolescents between 18 and 19 years old, attending the first semester of several undergraduate courses in different colleges, private and public, using standard forms, BITE (Bulimic Investigatory Test, Edinburgh) and a short version of  EAT- 26 ( Eating Attitudes Test ). The survey results showed a high predisposition in this population to anorexia and bulimia, which can be analyzed from the effects of the incidence of culture on the image in contemporary adolescents.
