dc.description.abstractObesity is a significant health problem in South Africa and the need for intervention in this regard has been emphasized. Existing information indicates that modifiable risk factors such as diet and physical activity may be contributing to this problem. However, little other information on many of the other potential risk factors for obesity development is available. The primary aim of this study therefore was to investigate the associations between weight status, personal and parental weight history, weight management practices (including body weight and shape satisfaction), eating behaviour and 6-n-propylthiouracil (PROP) taste sensitivity in Zulu and Caucasian women using a case control design. The secondary aim was to compare Zulu and Caucasian cases as well as Zulu and Caucasian controls for key variables.en_ZA
