The purpose of this study was to analyse the relationships between food addiction (FA), anthropometric characteristics and academic performance.
The average age (sd) of the participants was 17·5 (sd 2·7) years (64·1 % female). Each study participant indicated their sex, height, weight and academic performance and completed the Yale Food Addiction Scale.
Syktyvkar, Kirov, Tyumen, Yekaterinburg, Russia; Aizawl, India.
The study involved 3426 people.
FA was found in 8·7 % of participants from Russia and 14·6 % from India. In schoolchildren but not in university students, high academic performance was associated with a higher incidence rate of FA detection (OR = 1·16, 95 % CI 1·07, 1·26) and a lower BMI (OR = 0·72, 95 % CI 0·56, 0·94).
These data showed an increased incidence rate of FA detection in adolescents with high academic performance.
