INTRODUCTION: This study was conducted to determine adolescents’ habits of consumption of energy drinks and supplementary foods and to evaluate the results using an ecological approach.
METHODS: This study was conducted with 1084 adolescents between December 2016 and June 2017 in a city center to determine adolescents’ habits of consumption of energy drinks and supplementary foods and to evaluate the results using an ecological approach. Data were collected using a self-questionaired form prepared by the researchers.
RESULTS: Male adolescents consumed more sports drinks, energy drinks and protein powders than girls (p <.001). Female students were more unable to stop themselves while they were eating compared to male students. Parental continuous dieting was associated with adolescent energy consumption (OR = 0.64, p =.038) and adverse drug use (OR = 6.28, p =.002) (OR = 2.85, p =.008). To criticise continually due to past mistakesrelated to energy consumption (OR = 0.43, p <.05), parental desire to know their adolescent’s friends was found to be related to drug use (OR = 0.11, p <.001) to lose weight. Additionally, we found that depression was related to smoking (OR = 4.05, p <.001).
DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: The unconscious use of energy drinks and supplements is increasing rapidly and the effect on the body is unknown.
