Abstract

Abstract Background: The less physical activity and an unhealthy diet are the factors contributing to the poor health among university students. This study aims to address this, by investigating the factors that influence eating behaviour and attitudes. Methods: This is an analytic study. The study was carried out on May 2018 in Kutahya, Turkey. The research was completed with the participation of 333 students. The Diet-Exercise Behaviour Scale (DEBS) and The Diet-Exercise Attitude Scale (DEAS) were used to determine the diet behaviours and attitudes of the students. Results: This is an analytic study. The study was carried out on May 2018 in Kutahya, Turkey. The research was completed with the participation of 333 students. The Diet-Exercise Behaviour Scale (DEBS) and The Diet-Exercise Attitude Scale (DEAS) were used to determine the diet behaviours and attitudes of the students. Conclusion: Habitual physical activity, regular and balanced diet established during the university years may provide the greatest likelihood of impact on morbidity and longevity. Efforts should be focused on facilitating an active lifestyle for a person in an effort to put a stop to the increasing prevalence of obesity.
