Resumen

ASPILLAGA H, Carolina et al. SUBJECTIVE EXPERIENCES OF ADOLESCENTS WITH OBESITY REGARDING TO THEIR TREATMENT. Rev. chil. nutr. [online]. 2012, vol.39, n.2, pp. 191-199. ISSN 0717-7518.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75182012000200008.

The objective of this study was to understand the subjective experiences of Chilean adolescents with obesity, regarding their treatment to lose weight. A qualitative methodology and descriptive design was performed. The sample was formed by nine participants between 13 and 18 years old. The data was collected through focused interviews and was analyzed according to the principles of Grounded Theory. Results indicate thatfor participants is important to have a multidisciplinary treatment with environment support to fulfill its realization. Intrinsic motivation to create change is as relevant and feeling that it is possible to carry out the treatment and see the positive effects of it, takes great relevance. As for the conflicts that occur in their implementation, important points are the lack of consistency, difficulty of changing habits and the external environment, when it does not help to maintain treatment.

Palabras clave : obesity; adolescence; meanings; experiences; treatment.
