Abstract
Empirical data abound on stress eating, binge eating, eating disorders and its association with the emotional state of an individual. Interventions in such conditions focus on emotional perception, understanding, and emotional regulation for enhancing health and well-being. Emotional intelligence or EI is predictive of different indicators of physical and psychological health. However, there has been no significant contribution by way of research on EI and food pattern for understanding and developing strategies for therapeutic intervention. The current study was carried out to study the association between EI, eating patterns and body mass index among young girls in a cosmopolitan city like Chennai. The study revealed a correlation between emotional intelligence and body mass index. Though no association could be established in the current study between food pattern and emotional intelligence, the impact eating pattern has on certain components of emotional intelligence cannot be ignored. Taking cognizance of food consumption patterns is essential for developing effective interventions.
