This thesis examined Australian adolescents’ perception of their weight and the association of weight perception with weight related behaviours. Overall, this thesis indicated that many adolescents misperceive their weight status and that this is related to gender specific body ideals. Accurate perception of weight did not promote positive health behaviours.
