The Correlation Between the Body Mass Index and the Nutrients Intake , Exhortative Quantity of Nutritive Substance in Unmarried Women
The aim of this study was to investigate the various forms of diet and energy intake, total nutrients intake of daily energy and the changes of building up a meal habit for unmarried women to be slender. For achieving this study, first of all, I selected 50 unmarried women 22∼29 in age, and calculated the exhortative quantity and nutrients intake of each nutrition substance, by means of experimenting 24 hours recollections for each nutrients intake and body mass index. I came to the following conclusion after investigating the body mass index gained by body measure and correlations and nutrients significant on nutrients intake and exhortative quantity. 1. Examing the difference from the exhortative quantity and nutrients intake in unmarried women group of this study, I concluded that the nutrients intake showed less than the exhortative quantity in calorie, very little in protein, and deficient in fat intake. Also the intake carbohydrate, calcium and iron content of the main nutrition showed less than the exhortative quantity, and much in phosphorus, vitamin A, and vitamin C. And there was non-significants with vitamin B_1 and vitamin B_2 The total differences showed nearly the same as calorie(p<0.01), fat(p<0.05), calcium(p<0.05), phosphorus(p<0.01), vitamin A(p<0.01), niacin(p<0.05), and vitamin C(p<0.01) in general nutritive substance. 2. The relation with body weight and age as physical characteristics, the body mass index showed significants to the age. 3. The correlation between the body mass index and each nutrients intake in unmarried women group of this study showed very little differences in other nutrition, but showed significants correlation in vitamin A(p<0.05), and vitamin C(p<0.01).
