Sažetak
Body satisfaction and weight-related attitudes of adult men were not often explored. The more commonly manifested problems of female dissatisfaction have led to a reduction in interest in studying the causes and consequences of body dissatisfaction of men. Yet, rare research on this topic found that there is only a different relationship between weight and body satisfaction among men and women, but with similar psychosocial consequences of dissatisfaction. Women have a linear relationship between satisfaction and body weight, where women with increased body weight express greater dissatisfaction. In men samples, it seems that this relationship is curved. Overweight as well as underweight men express less body satisfaction comparing to men with normal weight.

The aim of this study was to investigate and test the relationship between body mass index and weight satisfaction in young adult men sample in Croatia. Participants were 196 students aged 18 to 29, from University of Zagreb. Participants filled out an online questionnaire on body weight satisfaction and were asked to provide their height and weight. From this data, a BMI score for each participant was calculated by using the BMI equation. The obtained dana were analysed using linear and nonlinear regression models and it was shown that the curvilinear, square function better fit the data. The U-shaped curve depict the relationship between BMI and body satisfaction significantly better comparing to the linear model. The same was confirmed by the ANOVA procedure comparing the groups of underweight, normal-range and overweight men by their weight satisfaction. Men with low and high BMIs have been significantly less satisfied with their body weight than those of normal weight. These results confirm the expectations of the curved relationship between body weight and body satisfaction in men reinforcing the findings in the area.
