Amaç: Üniversite öğrencilerinde vücut kitle indeksi ile kilo algısı, yeme problemleri ve fiziksel aktivite arasındaki ilişkiyi açıklamaktır. Gereç ve Yöntem: Kesitsel ve tanımlayıcı bu çalışma, bir devlet üniversitesindeki öğrenciler (n=491) ile yürütülmüştür. Veri toplamak için Yeme Tutum Testi, Uluslararası Fiziksel Aktivite Ölçeği, ve demografik bilgi formu kullanılmıştır. Veri analizi için tanımlayıcı istatistikler, bağımsız gruplarda t- testi, tek yönlü anova testi ve kikare testi kullanılmıştır. Bulgular: Öğrencilerin %21’i fazla kilolu idi. Düşük kilolu, normal kilolu ve fazla kilolu öğrenciler arasında kilo algısı, kilo kontrol davranışları, yaşam memnuniyeti ve yeme tutumları bakımından fark bulunmuştur (p < 0.05). Sonuç: Fazla kilolu öğrenciler yanlış kilo algısı, kilo verme çabası, yaşam memnuniyetsizliği ve yeme problemleri bakımından daha risklidir. Koruyucu çabalar öğrenciler arasında yeme biçimini, fiziksel aktiviteyi ve mental sağlığı geliştirmeye odaklanmalıdır.
