    "description": "<p><strong>BACKGROUND:</strong> According to a national survey in 2014, the prevalence of overweight and obesity among Saudi women is reaching 33.5%. Instead of adopting healthy lifestyle, this population may adopt some weight management practices (WMP) which might be unhealthy and some could lead to serious health issues.<strong> </strong><strong>AIM:</strong> &nbsp;To compare lifestyle patterns and WMP adopted by obese and normal weight Saudi females by assessing the difference in energy and macronutrients intake, dietary habits, level of physical activity and WMP.<strong> </strong><strong>METHODS:</strong>&nbsp; Through a cross-sectional study among female students at Princess Nourah Bint Abdulrahman University (PNU) (Riyadh &ndash; KSA.), 200 participants were conveniently selected, assigned in two groups in obese and normal weight (each group have 100 students) based on their BMI according to the WHO cut-off values. Data collected through questionnaire and analysis was performed using SPSS program, Chi-square and <em>t</em>-test were used to assess the difference between the two groups. <strong>RESULTS: </strong>&nbsp;Unhealthy WMP were high among obese students. Total calorie intake was not different; however, fat intake was higher in obese group (p&lt;0.01). Level of moderate active was higher in normal group than obese group (33% versus 19%, respectively). Food frequency consumption showed that fruit, date and dressing were higher in obese group compared to normal weight group (p-value = 0.02, 0.01 and 0.03). <strong>CONCLUSIONS:</strong> Obese PNU female students adopt unhealthy WMP besides their inadequate nutritional intake and unhealthy dietary habits. Increasing awareness about the healthy lifestyle to manage weight is urgently needed.</p>",
