Description

Research in humans has demonstrated that stress causes physical, emotional, interpersonal, and/or psychological changes (O'Connor et al., 2008). In the US, there is supporting evidence that stress stimulates changes in dressing habits and food choices (e.g., The American Institute of Stress, 2008; Habhab, Sheldon, & Loeb, 2009; Kandiah & Saiki, 2010) however, limited research has investigated other ethnicities. The purpose of this research is to examine how perceived stress influences dressing and eating behaviors of Chinese female students.
