Besides, this result is also
consistent with Klesges, Klem, & Bene (1989) finding. They have suggested
eating behavior can predict in gender difference. Since, female are more dissatisfied with their body weight and
shape than male so eating behavior will become difference (Klesges,
Klem, & Bene,1989). 

In addition, in present study, the
researcher shown that three domain in eating behavior relate with gender
difference. First, the result shown that both of male and female are high in
cognitive restraint eating behavior. The cognitive restraint eating behavior is
individual is conscious control of food intake with concerns about body image (French, Epstein,
Jeffery, Blundell, Wardle, 2012).
Therefore, students be awareness the eating behavior and understand negative
eating behavior cause body health and weight. Second, the result shown that
emotional eating behavior in male and female is moderate Since the students
will join the cocurricula to reduce the stress that affect the students has
good emotion in daily. The stress can influence the student’s mood in eating.
The negative emotion can cause students to eat more to reduce the stress (Kuessous, 2009).  Third, the result shown that uncontrolled
eating is moderate in male and female. The students sometimes will be
uncontrolled in eating because of the environment factor such as near a
restaurant, celebrate party or friends invite to eat outsides. However,
students will the physically activities to maintain body weight to prevent the

5.1.3Research Hypothesis
3: There is a correlation between gender difference and obesity among in Tunku
Abdul Rahman University College (TARUC)

The third hypothesis shown that there
is an insignificant relationship between gender and obesity among TARC
students. The result consistent with research conducted by Kruger, De Bray, Beck, Conlon, & Stonehouse
(2016). They find that few of factor can affect body mass index related eating behaviors in male and female (Kruger,
et al., 2016). The factor that researchers
mentioned is environment factor and individual factor. The environment factor
was having area parks, sidewalks, affordable gyms makes and near supermarket,
it for people to be physically active and eating fresh fruits and vegetables. In present study, the students will do physical
activates by useing TARUC sport facilities to prevent obesity. Besides, students
also easy to get the fresh fruit and vegetable around the college. Therefore,
students will eat more the fresh fruit and vegetable that can prevent

addition, this result also consistent to (Silha, Krsek, Sucharda, & Murphy, 2005). They find that gender
difference and eating behavior can influence by the individual factor. The individual factor can be
stress level of individuals, emotional and poor sleep in daily. The individual
who poor sleep can cause the body weight because hormones that are released
during sleep control appetite and the body’s use of energy (Silha, Krsek, Sucharda, & Murphy, 2005). The appetite of the individual also is
important in affect the body weight. In present research, the students in TARUC can be under stress cause
poor sleep in rush assignment and the midterm test. Therefore, students have a
negative emotion cause mood and appetite in eating the food.


Conclusion of result

As a conclusion,
the first research hypothesis, is there correlation between eating
behavior and obese among in Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (TARUC) is no
significant because other factor can cause students in eating behavior and body
weight. The second
research hypothesis, is there gender difference and eating behaviour among in Tunku Abdul
Rahman University College (TARUC),
result in both females and males are have consistent result in previous study.
The female and male have a different eating behaviour in daily. Last but not
least, the third research hypothesis, is there gender difference and obesity among in Tunku Abdul
Rahman University College (TARUC),
the findings had indicated the no consistent between these two variables
because students will keep body weight to look beauty and take care the body

Justification of Finding to the Background, Aim, Hypothesis

            In the present, researcher find obesity become an issue
in Malaysia. In Malaysia, obesity tend to young people so young people have a
high risk health problem.  Besides, the
research conduct by Lowe and Timko (2004)
mentioned that obesity have high risk suffering in diabetes mellitus,
cardiovascular disease, hypertension and stroke, and certain forms of cancer.
Therefore, in present study, researcher wants to find out the relationship
between eating behavior and obesity among college students. However, in this
study shown that there is no relationship between the eating behavior and
obesity among college students. 

            On other hand, in this study researcher also set other
two hypothesis that are the gender difference and eating behavior and gender
difference and obesity. Since, first hypothesis is insignificant in eating
behavior and obesity. In second and thrid hypothesis of  difference and eating behavior is significant
but gender difference and obesity is insignificant This reason is due to the male
consume more calories than female because male
tend to more muscular, and muscle burns more calories than fat (Soo,
Shariff, Taib, and Samah , 2008). Besides that,
the female experience more food-related conflict than men in that they like
fattening foods but perceive that they should not eat them (Rolls, Fedoroff, & Guthrie, 1991). In this study, research find that both gender
students will join the cocurricular activities to increase the physical activities
to prevent the obesity.
