    • Abstract: Resumen Este estudio tuvo como objetivo conocer la relación entre estado nutricional, prácticas de alimentación del cuidador y conducta alimentaria en preescolares de una comuna del centro sur de Chile. La muestra estuvo compuesta por 249 preescolares y sus cuidadores principales. Se encontró una relación positiva entre índice de masa corporal (IMC) del niño y preocupación por el peso del niño (r = .51, p < .01), así como entre IMC del niño y alimentación restrictiva del cuidador (r = .20, p < .01). Se encontraron relaciones débiles aunque significativas entre estado nutricional (IMC y porcentaje de grasa corporal) y conducta alimentaria en niños. Análisis de correlaciones canónicas indicaron que las variables agrupadas de prácticas de alimentación infantil se relacionaron positivamente con el estado nutricional del niño (ρ3 = .54, < .001). Adicionalmente, se encontró que la preocupación por el peso del niño mediaba parcialmente la relación entre restricción alimentaria e IMC (IC 95% efecto indirecto “ab” [.02; .13]) y entre restricción y porcentaje de grasa corporal (IC 95% efecto indirecto “ab” [.06; .50]). Las actitudes y prácticas de alimentación infantil de los cuidadores principales, particularmente la preocupación por el peso del niño y la restricción en la alimentación juegan un rol crítico en la mantención y manejo de la obesidad en preescolares. Se exploran las implicancias prácticas de estos hallazgos.Abstract The objective of this research was to determine the relationship between child nutritional status, feeding practices of the primary caregiver and the child eating behavior of preschoolers in a community in south-central Chile. The sample comprised 249 preschool children from three public and semi-public schools and their primary caregivers. A positive relationship was found between body mass index (BMI) and weight concern (r = .51, p < .01) and restrictive feeding practice (r = .20, p < .01). Significant but weak relationship existed between BMI, body fat percentage and child eating behavior. Canonical correlation analysis indicated that child feeding practices as a group were related to nutritional status of children. Additionally, weight concerns partially mediate the relationship between restrictive feeding and BMI (CI 95% indirect effect “ab” [.02; .13]) and body fat percentage (IC 95% efecto indirecto “ab” [.06; .50]). Child feeding practices of the primary caregivers, particularly weight concern and restrictive feeding play an important role in the management of the preschool children obesity.

    • Abstract: Resumen Este estudio incorpora una perspectiva socio-antropológica con el objetivo de analizar y comprender los motivos que animan a los actores sociales que padecen las enfermedades crónico-degenerativas, a modificar o no sus prácticas alimentarias, así como las representaciones sociales de la alimentación y la salud desde su propia subjetividad que participan en un programa institucional en prevención de la salud. La aproximación metodológica de corte cualitativo recupera la noción de representaciones, que permiten comprender cómo se gestan los cambios en las prácticas alimentarias a partir de las concepciones y las valoraciones que manejan los actores sobre la dieta y su impacto en la salud. La evidencia empírica de este estudio se recopiló mediante 19 entrevistas, realizadas a 13 mujeres y 6 varones adultos (edad promedio: 45 años), usuarios del servicio de nutrición de una clínica de primer nivel de atención de seguridad social en la ciudad de Cuernavaca (Morelos, México). Los principales resultados muestran que las modificaciones en las prácticas alimentarias se correlacionan con la representación de alimento-cura, con el grado de apoyo familiar que reciben y su valoración de la terapia nutricional integral. Asimismo, los resultados apuntan a que los sujetos que perciben los efectos positivos del tratamiento nutricional integral en el control de su enfermedad son más proclives a mantener los cambios dietéticos.Abstract This study seeks to explore and understand, from a socio-anthropological perspective, the reasons that make social actors with chronic-degenerative diseases manage -or not- changes in their eating habits, as well as the social representations of food and health from their own subjectivity, which they participate in an institutional prevention program. A qualitative research approach to this subject is based on the use of the concept of representations that allows understanding the importance of social actors’ conceptions and assessments of diet and its impact on health, in terms of changes in their eating habits. The empirical evidence for the article was collected through 19 interviews, (13 women and 6 men), on average 45 years old, users of the nutrition service in a first level social security clinic in the city of Cuernavaca, Morelos. The main results show that changes in eating habits are related to the representation of food as a cure, as well as the level of family support in receiving and assessing the integral nutritional therapy. Results also suggest that actors that perceive positive effects of integral nutritional therapy controlling their diseases are more willing to keep up their treatments.

    • Abstract: Resumen Una de las principales causas de la obesidad es la alimentación. La alimentación forma parte del medio social, y algunas de las variables sociales vinculadas con el bienestar y la salud son el apoyo y las barreras sociales. Por lo tanto, el objetivo del presente estudio fue analizar las diferencias en comportamiento alimentario, así como apoyo y barreras sociales recibidas y proporcionadas en mujeres con obesidad vs. normopeso en un contexto natural de alimentación. Participaron cinco mujeres con obesidad y cinco normopeso, quienes fueron videograbadas por cuatro días consecutivos durante el momento de la “comida” en su hogar. El alimento fue registrado y pesado; las conductas de alimentación, de apoyo y las barreras sociales fueron registradas a partir de catálogos de observación sistemática elaborados exprofeso. Los resultados mostraron que las mujeres con obesidad ingirieron más frecuentemente, y en mayor cantidad, bebidas endulzadas, antojitos mexicanos fritos y comida rápida. Además, fueron objeto de más barreras instrumentales que les impedían alimentarse saludablemente. En conclusión, es necesario abordar el medio social en el que la alimentación tiene lugar, ya que el tipo de interacciones sociales pueden jugar un papel importante en la alimentación.Abstract One of the main causes of obesity is food. Food is part of the social environment and some of the social variables that have been linked to well-being and health are support and social barriers. Therefore, the aim was to analyze the differences on eating behavior, support and social barriers received and given between obesity women vs. normal weight women in the natural feeding context. Five women with obesity and five with normal weight participated, who were videotaped with their consent four consecutive days during the feeding time of the “food” in their home; food was recorded and weighed. We recorded eating behaviors, and behaviors of support and social barriers from a systematic observation catalog prepared exprofeso. The results showed that women with obesity ingested a greater frequency and quantity of sweetened beverages, fried Mexican snacks and fast food. In addition, they received a greater frequency of instrumental barriers to eat healthy. In conclusion, it is necessary to address the social environment in which food takes place, since the type of social interactions may be playing an important role in food.

    • Abstract: Resumen Los objetivos de la presente investigación son describir las conductas alimentarias, así como comparar la búsqueda de sensaciones en diferentes niveles de riesgo alimentario. Se midieron las conductas alimentarias de riesgo y la búsqueda de sensaciones. Se seleccionó una muestra no probabilística de tipo intencional de 1012 jóvenes, de entre 14 y 22 años de edad (M = 16.7). Los resultados mostraron que las mujeres se preocupan más por su peso, vomitan, ayunan, hacen dieta y usan pastillas para perder peso, en comparación con los hombres, quienes practican más atracones y tienen una mayor falta de control al comer que las mujeres. Además, quienes presentan alto riesgo alimentario tienen mayores niveles de búsqueda de sensaciones. La discusión analiza la utilidad de lo encontrado para prevenir los problemas alimentarios en los jóvenes, así como identificar a la búsqueda de sensaciones como un factor de riesgo del comportamiento alimentario dentro de los programas de nutrición y salud.Abstract The objective of this research was to describe the risk behavior eating and analyze differencces in sensatión seeking into risk disorder eating. A questionnaire was used that included risk eating behaviors and sensation seeking inventory. A sample was use formed by 1012 youths between 14 and 22 (mean 16.7) years old, in México City. The results revealed that the woman concern about weight, vomit, fast, make restrictive dieting and use pills for weight reduce, a difference of the man, this make binge eating, lose self- control for eating, more than the woman. The youths male and female with high nutritional risk have higher levels in sensations seeking. The discussion analyzes the utility for prevent eating disorders in youths and identify the sensation seeking as a risk factor for eating behavior within the nutrition and health programs.

    • Abstract: Resumen La Gimnasia Rítmica (GR) es un deporte estético donde la delgadez es un factor importante para el éxito. La presente investigación tuvo como objetivo analizar conductas de riesgo y el nivel de preocupación de la percepción de la imagen corporal en gimnastas de elite chilenas. Se procedió a analizar conductas alimentarias de riesgo y la percepción de la imagen corporal en 53 gimnastas, a través de la aplicación del Eating Attitude Test (EAT - 26), el Body Shape Questionaire (BSQ) y grupos focales. Un 67,9% demostró no manifestar preocupación por la imagen corporal, 15,1%, manifestó preocupación leve, 13,2% manifestó preocupación moderada y 3,8% preocupación extrema. De igual manera un 67,9% no presenta riesgo de conducta alimentaria y 32,1% sí manifiesta esta condición. Existe relación entre las conductas alimentarias de riesgo y la percepción de la imagen corporal (p=0,028). Los grupos focales revelaron que las gimnastas señalan estar incómodas con su figura y que, en su alimentación dejan de lado algunos nutrientes, indican además que sus entrenadores dan instrucciones u opiniones sobre la figura de sus gimnastas de formas “no adecuadas” y con “poco profesionalismo”. Reconocen además no estar conformes con su imagen y manifiestan preocupación por la opinión de terceros.Abstract Rhythmic Gymnastics (RM) is an aesthetic sport where thinness is an important factor for success. The present research aimed to analyze risk behaviors and the level of concern of body image perception in Chilean elite gymnasts. We proceeded to analyze risky eating behaviors and the perception of body image in 53 gymnasts, through the application of the Eating Attitude Test (EAT - 26), the Body Shape Questionnaire (BSQ) and focus groups. A 67.9% showed no concern for body image, 15.1% showed mild concern, 13.2% showed moderate concern and 3.8% showed extreme concern. Similarly, 67.9% did not show risk of eating behavior and 32.1% did show this condition. There is a relationship between risky eating behaviors and body image perception (p=0.028). The focus groups revealed that the gymnasts indicated that they are uncomfortable with their figure and that they leave out some nutrients in their diet, and that their coaches give instructions or opinions about the figure of their gymnasts in “inappropriate” and “unprofessional” ways. They also recognize that they are not satisfied with their image and express concern about the opinion of third parties.

    • Abstract: Resumen Actualmente el sobrepeso y la obesidad presentan una alta prevalencia a nivel mundial, y se encuentran relacionados con enfermedades crónico-degenerativas, mortalidad prematura y disminución en la calidad de vida. El propósito de esta investigación fue comparar la calidad de vida relacionada con la salud (CVRS) en función del estado de nutrición (EN) y sexo. Participaron 202 adultos (84 hombres y 118 mujeres), con una edad entre 18 y 81 años (M =39.74 DE = 13.77), quienes fueron distribuidos por su EN en: normopeso, sobrepeso y obesidad. Los participantes completaron el cuestionario 36-Item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36). En la muestra predominó la dimensión Función física (FF), considerándola muy buena. Las dimensiones Rol emocional (RE), Rol físico (RF), Vitalidad (VT) y Salud mental (SM) se ubicaron en el nivel de bueno, y solamente la Salud general (SG) se consideró regular. En el caso de la comparación entre los grupos en función del EN no se encontraron diferencias significativas; sin embargo, en la comparación por sexo, los hombres obtuvieron mayores puntuaciones en: FF, SM, VT y RE. Se concluye que no hay diferencia estadísticamente significativa de la CVRS entre los grupos por EN, no obstante, al realizar la comparación por sexo se encuentran diferencias significativas a favor de los hombres.Abstract Overweight and obesity currently have a high prevalence worldwide, are related to chronic degenerative diseases, premature mortality and the decline in quality of life. The purpose of the present investigation was to compare the quality of life related to health (HRQoL) between groups by their nutritional status (NS) and by sex. There was a sample of 202 participants (84 men and 118 women) with an age between 18 and 81 years (M =39.74 SD = 13.77), distributed by their NS in: normal weight, overweight and obesity, they were administered the questionnaire 36-Item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36). In the general sample, the Physical Function (PF) dimension was predominant, being considered as very good, the scores obtained in the Emotional Role (ER), Physical Role (PR), Vitality (VT) and Mental Health (MH) dimensions were in a range estimated as good and only the General Health (GH) dimension was considered regular. In the case of the comparison between the groups by state of nutrition, no statistically significant differences were found between them, however, in the comparison made by sex, statistically significant differences were found in the factors of PF, MH, VT and ER in favor of the group of men. In conclusion, there is not statistically significant difference of the HRQoL between the groups by NS, nevertheless, when performing the comparison by sex, significant differences are found in favor of the men.

    • Abstract: Resumen La obesidad y el sobrepeso son problemas de origen multifactorial, la interacción de los factores ambientales, genéticos y conductuales parecen ser la clave en el desarrollo de esta patología. Los receptores MC3 (rMC3) y MC4 (rMC4), participan en la regulación del balance energético (consumo de alimento, gasto energético y peso corporal), su mutación genética está asociada con el incremento de la adiposidad y el desarrollo de la obesidad. El conocimiento que se tiene de estos receptores y su función aún es limitado, principalmente con respecto a los rMC3 y, aunque los rMC4 se están posicionando como un blanco terapéutico potencial para el tratamiento de la obesidad, se requiere de mayor investigación clínica. Por lo tanto, el propósito de este documento es presentar evidencia de la participación de los receptores MC3 y MC4 en el desarrollo de la obesidad, a través de los resultados encontrados en algunas investigaciones, tanto en modelos animales como en humanos.Abstract Obesity and overweight are problems of multifactorial origin, the interaction of environmental, genetic, and behavioral factors seems to be the key in the development of this pathology. The MC3 (rMC3) and MC4 (rMC4) receptors participate in the regulation of energy balance (food intake, energy expenditure and body weight), their genetic mutation is associated with increased adiposity and the development of obesity. Knowledge of these receptors and their function is still limited, mainly with respect to rMC3 and, although rMC4 are positioning themselves as a potential therapeutic target for the treatment of obesity, further clinical research is required. Therefore, the purpose of this document is to present the participation of MC3 and MC4 receptors in the development of obesity, through the results found in some investigations, both in animal and in human´s models.
