INVESTIGATION OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN FOOD CONSUMPTION, ANTHROPOMETRIC MEASUREMENTS AND FIVE-DIMENSIONAL WELL-BEING MODEL (PERMA) OF WHITE-COLLAR WORKERS
Ipek Ezgi Oksuzoglu, Irem Olcay Eminsoy*
This study was carried out between December 2019-February 2020 on 300 individuals, aged 20-64, 61% were men and 39% were women. The mean age of men and women were 38.15±7.40 and 38.93±7.26 years in order. Men and women were compared, women's positive emotions, attachment, and total PERMA scores were statistically significantly higher than men (p<0.05). There is a statistically significant negative correlation between BMI (r=-0.135, p=0.023), waist circumference (r=-0.133, p=0.026), hip circumference (r=0.154, p=0.009), waist/hip height (r=-0.194, p=0.001) with health subheading. In the evaluation of the negative feeling, there is a statistically, p=0.042), waist circumference (r=-0.135, p=0.022), with hip circumference (cm) (r=-0.118, p= 0.045). The relationship between energy, carbohydrate, protein and fat intakes of the individuals participating in the study and the PERMA scale was examined. Accordingly, respectively, energy (r=0.170, p=0.004), protein (r= 0.191, p= 0.001), fat (r=0.138, p= 0.019), carbohydrates (r=0.136, P=0.02, and sucrose (r= 0.116, p=0.049) and loneliness was statistically significant positive correlation. This is the first study to evaluate the relationship between the PERMA scale, food consumption and anthropometric measures of white-collar workers. More studies on the subject will provide a better presentation of the relationship between well-being and food consumption.[Full Text Article]
