Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka studenters kost- och motionsvanor vid Högskolan Väst relaterat till kön och institution. Studiens resultat baserades på 323 insamlade enkäter, relevant litteratur och vetenskapliga verk som avhandlingar, rapporter och artiklar. Resultatet av högskolestudenternas kost- och motionsvanor analyserades ur ett sociologiskt perspektiv. Studien visade skillnader mellan studenters kost- och motionsvanor i flera avseenden beroende av kön och institution. Kvinnliga studenter på Högskolan Väst har i flera avseenden uppgett sig ha bättre kost- och motionsvanor än de manliga studenterna. Resultatet i studien visade samtidigt en marginell skillnad mellan hur ofta de manliga och kvinnliga studenterna utförde motion. Studenter från institutionen Omvårdnad, hälsa & kultur har i flera avseenden uppgett sig ha bättre kost- och motionsvanor enligt svenska rekommendationer än övriga institutionerna. Studenter från Ekonomi & IT uppgav sig följa de svenska näringsrekommendationerna i minst utsträckning. Högskolestudenter från institutionen Ingenjörsvetenskap utförde minst motion och fysiskt aktivitet i jämförelse med andra institutioner från Högskolan Väst.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine if there were any differences between students’ dietary and exercise habits depending on sex and affiliated institution at University West. The study was based on 323 questionnaires, relevant literature and scientific works as theses, reports and articles. The results were analyzed from a sociological perspective. Dependent on sex or institution affiliation differences were found of dietary and exercise habits. Female students at University West in many respects indicate somewhat better dietary and exercise habits than male students did. In addition, small differences between the frequency of male and female students’ exercise were found. According to the Swedish guidelines for dietary and exercise students from the Department of Nursing, Health and Culture reported more healthy habits than students in average. Opposite to this finding, students from the Department of Economics & Informatics, showed the least compliance to the Swedish guidelines. Students from the Department of Engineering exercised least frequently compared to students from the other examined institutions at University West.
