I am a final year student at the University of Bath doing my dissertation on the concept on 'exercise dependence', where too much exercise can become bad for you. If you take part in regular physical activity and would like to know how you perceive yourself physically, then you are eligible to take part in my questionnaire (https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BLMSR82) which should only take about 15 mins to complete. If you are interested or have any questions, please feel free to contact me (hw282@bath.ac.uk). Thank you.

Done, though heaven knows what kind of selection bias you'll get by posting on this forum!

Me too! The question about eating more than most people think is normal made me laugh - I don't know about you guys but I eat so much!

I filled it in, there are a lot of repeated questions, but I guess that's to check that you are being consistent in your answers.

I managed to do it in only about 5 mins, its not massively stressful. The question, Wolfy, was to assess your perception of what people think ie: what do you BELIEVE people think about you. I think the majority of the population have pretty solid ideas about how they think other's perceieve them.

Ellie - I know, I regularly eat volumes other people wouldnt believe!

Thank you everyone who has filled it in so far! I really appreciate it!

Apologies for it being a bit long and repetitive towards the end, but it is just to see how consistent you are being with your answers.

Anyone who has asked for their results, I will hopefully have them emailed to you by next Wednesday.

Feel free to ask any of your friends to fill it out!

In an age where kids grow up knowing they've got to be 140cm to get on certain theme park rides, that might not be a majority for too much longer...

Flyaway - Glad it isn't just me and the husband! People look at us very strangely at times! Our shopping bill has increased massively since we both started this tri malarkey. Ironholgs has a lot to answer for!

I have just ordered a mahoosive pizza and I will no doubt eat the whole thing! I don't believe in training hard AND eating healthily (well not all the time)!

Hmmmm...i thought being hungry all the time was part of the training...perhaps i should eat more...

Done!! I definitely think the average response from this lot will skew your results though!!
