Women and men have different socially and culturally defined expectations for ideal body weight, and thus perceive their bodies differently and respond to distinct motivations for gaining or losing weight. Further, their social position, power, access to resources, roles in family and community differ, and have consequences for their access to food and other resources that help promote healthy body weight. Knowledge of these and other distinct factors in the lives of Guatemalan women and men can help to pinpoint opportunities for more strategic, appropriate and efficient means for the prevention of overweight and obesity.
