  1. aModel 1 was the unadjusted model i.e., Fig. 3
  2. bModel 2 was adjusted for sex, BMI, pubertal stage, age, parental education and ethnicity; i.e., direct paths between each variable and weight loss preoccupation were included
  3. cThe Lagrange Multiplier test was used to estimate which parameters should be included to improve model fits. Additional parameters included in model 3 were indirect paths between sex, pubertal stage and BMI percentile on weight loss preoccupation via psychological functioning and error covariance between body-esteem and weight loss preoccupation
