Abstract

Obesity is an important risk factor for lifestyle diseases. There has been much interest in the role of eating behavior in the development of obesity, but findings from population-based epidemiologic studies are limited and inconsistent. The objective of our cross-sectional study was to examine the association between eating behavior and prevalence of overweight. Subjects were 290 men of two municipal offices in northeastern Kyusyu, Japan. A positive association was found between overweight and some eating behaviors; multivariate-adjusted odds ratios (95% confidence intervals) for overweight were 4.33 (2.46-7.64), 2.29 (1.22-4.32), and 2.01 (1.06-3.80) for the behaviors of eating quickly, eating until full and eating fatty foods, respectively. Moreover, the prevalence of overweight was further increased when these eating behaviors were combined; multivariate odds ratios (95% confidence intervals) of overweight for men with 1, 2 and ≥3 versus no high-risk eating behaviors were 2.66 (1.27-5.56), 4.32 (1.87-9.97) and 7.32 (3.01-17.84), respectively (p<0.0001 for trend). Our findings suggest that eating quickly, eating until full and eating fatty foods are related to overweight in Japanese men.
