The central aim of this paper is to examine the relationship between advertising and editorial and self-reports of eating disorder and body image dissatisfaction among Hong Kong females. The Eating Attitude Test (EAT) and Body Dissatisfaction sub-scale in the Eating Disorder Inventory (EDI) are employed in a survey of females in Hong Kong. The analysis indicates that overall media consumption is a positive predictor of eating disorder and body image dissatisfaction.
