Abstract

First-year college students often experience increased depressive symptoms and weight gain Some may eat to cope with the stress of this transition (emotional eating) which puts them at greater risk for weight gain Conversely, students who tend to eat for physical reasons (e.g., eating when you feel hungry) may be less susceptible to weight gain and depressive symptoms Moreover, gender differences in cultural pressures may explain variances in EPR scores
