Abstract

This was a cross-sectional study in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. It included Dutch, African Surinamese and Ghanaian origin men and women (18-70 years) that participated in the multi-ethnic HELIUS study (n = 11,053). Body size ideals were assessed using a jumbled nine figure scale. Body satisfaction was calculated as the discrepancy between current and ideal silhouette. Acculturation proxies included age of migration, residence duration, ethnic identity and social network.
