Abstract [en]

Objective: The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between the individual frequency of use of both supplements and social media and how it can be linked to a poor body image. Method: A semi-structured questionnaire study of quantitative approach was created to investigate the respondent’s supplements habits, social media habits and their self-estimated body image. These questionnaires were then uploaded to a group on Facebook. This Facebook group exists to discuss training and diet. After completing the questionnaire the study had 54 respondents of which 51 had completed the entire survey and data could be fed into SPSS where the analysis of the results could be made. Results: The results of this study show that individuals who have a better body image use supplements and social media more. It also shows that individuals who use social media and supplements exercise more frequently. Conclusion: The results of this study deviates from previous research done in both areas. This may be because there is an absence of target group in the study, or that the study contains too few respondents.

Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Syftet med studien var att undersöka samband mellan individers användningsfrekvens av både kosttillskott och sociala medier och hur det kan vara kopplat till kroppsuppfattning Metod: En semistrukturerad enkätstudie av kvantitativ ansats skapades för att undersöka respondenternas kosttillskottsvanor, sociala media vanor och deras självuppskattade kroppsuppfattning. Denna enkät delades ut i en grupp på Facebook skapad för att diskutera träning och kost. Efter genomförd enkätundersökning hade studien 54 respondenter varav 51 hade fullföljt hela enkäten och data kunde matas in SPSS där analyser av enkätresultaten gjordes. Resultat: Studiens resultat visar på att individer som i större utsträckning använder kosttillskott och laddar upp bilder på sociala medier tränar mer. Samt har en bättre kroppsuppfattning än de som inte brukar kosttillskott och lägger upp bilder på sociala medier. Slutsats: Resultatet i denna studie skiljer sig från tidigare gjord forskning inom båda områden. Detta kan bero på att det finns en avsaknad av målgrupp och/eller för få respondenter i studien.
