  Nutritional status of university students is an indicator of health and well-being at both the individual and the population level. This study examines the diet and body constitution of university students in Turkey. 3 day diet recalls were collected, anthropometric and body composition measurements were made. The sample consisted of 57 male and 63 female students. Mean BMI was significantly lower in females than males (p<0.01). Significant differences between sexes were not found as regards total cholesterol and blood glucose. More than 50% of the respondents were meeting two thirds of the RDA for niacin, riboflavin, vitamin B6, vitamin C, phosphorus and zinc. The mean intakes of total energy, carbohydrate, protein, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, zinc, vitamin D, thiamine, riboflavin, vitamin B6 and folate were higher in males compared with female students. This research provides important information regarding anthropometric assessment, the micronutrient and macronutrient intake of university students in Turkey. The results show the need to consider the limitations of the reference data when carrying out nutritional assessments.

  The aim of this study was to examine the effects of body weight on stress and nutrition in women. Data were gathered from 889 women living in Turkey. The participants were selected randomly. Women were informed that the purpose of the study was to gather information on stress and nutrition and each participant attended a face-to-face interview. Subjects were administered a questionnaire containing demographic profile, anthropometric measurements, daily energy and macro-nutrients intakes, Stress Scale were used for descriptive purposes. Stress Symptom Scale, Stress Related Factors, Susceptibility to Stress Scale and Total Score were significantly associated with Body Mass Index (BMI) and daily energy and nutrients intake. Underweight and obese women had higher stress scores than normal weight women (p<0.0001). Normal weight women had a higher level of stress susceptibility to stress scale than underweight and obese women (p<0.0001). In addition, it was found that there was a correlation between women`s daily energy and nutrient consumption and their stress-related factors, stress symptoms scale, susceptibility to stress scale and total stress scores (p<0.05 and p<0.0001). The results suggest that, increased stress was strongly associated with body composition and daily energy and nutrients intake among Turkish women.
