More than a third of overweight teenagers do
not regard themselves as too heavy and think they
are about the right weight, a study in England
This might lead some teens to underestimate the
need for healthier diets and exercise, researchers
warn. But they say there is some good news---most
normal-weight teenagers recognised their weight
The study, funded by the charity Cancer Research
UK, appears in the International Journal of Obesity.
Concern and celebration
Over the last few decades, studies in adults have
hinted that fewer people are able to spot when they
And scientists speculate that the rising levels of
obesity across the population might have "normalised"
the idea of being overweight or obese, making it
harder to recognise the extra pounds.
But others argue that a constant barrage of media
and cultural messages encouraging people to be thin
might lead some to overestimate their weight.
To see how this might affect teenagers, the
researchers looked at nearly 5,000 adolescents aged
between 13 and 15. They used data collected from
the Health Survey for England spanning 2005-2012,
which included the following question: "Given your
age and height, would you say that you are about
the right weight, too heavy or too light?"
Separately, researchers recorded teenagers heights
and weights and calculated their body mass index---
a ratio of weight to height.
Their responses were then compared against cat-
egories of BMI. Eight out of ten teenagers of normal
weight according to the BMI measure, identified
themselves as about the right weight. But there were
differences between sexes, with normal-weight girls
more likely to consider themselves as too heavy. And
in adolescents whose weight put them in the over-
weight category, 39 per cent said they were about
the right weight.
Researchers say their results bring up challenging
questions about how best to tackle weight in teenagers,
without causing unnecessary concern in those whose
weight is healthy.
Prof Jane Wardle, from the Cancer Research UK
Health Behaviour Research Centre at University Col-
lege London, said: "This study was a cause for cel-
ebration and concern.
"Young people who think they re overweight when
they re not can sometimes develop devastating eating
disorders, so we re delighted that most of the nor-
mal-weight teenagers had a realistic view of their
"But we need to find effective ways of helping
too-heavy teenagers slim down and maintain a health-
ier weight, and it is vitally important that we find
out whether it helps if they are more aware of their
Eustace De Sousa, at Public Health England, said
a healthy weight could help protect against disease
in later life.
He added: "Children and teenagers consume more
sugar than anyone else, so cutting back and being
more active will help to maintain a healthy weight
and protect against developing type 2 diabetes, heart
disease and some cancers later in life."
