  1. RQ: Research Question. Some small categories have been combined. For example, few participants were classified as underweight, and these were therefore grouped with those of normal weight.
  2. *In RQ1 participants are not the unit of analysis, whereas for RQ2 and RQ3 participants are the units of analysis.
