Ricker, Kimberly L. M.A., Department of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation, Wright State University, 2008. Influences of Eating Disorders and Behaviors on College Cross Country and Track Runners.
Outside sources can be a large influence on athlete's perceptions of themselves, including their body image. Men and women face the same issues and influences from outside sources. The SCOFF questionnaire was used to determine if an athlete has the possibility of developing or already has an eating disorder. An eight question survey was also used to see what outside sources influence the eating behaviors of college cross country and track runners.
