The research tools were self-efficacy of lifestyle that effects on weight and Eisenck personality questionnaires.
Results: The results showed that there is a negative significant relationship between weight with neuroticism and psychotics (p<0.001), but there was no significant relationship between neuroticism and weight. Also, the results showed that the components of self-efficacy in weight control can predict weight of people. Based on this, overeating with impact factor equal to 0.001, diet with 0.28 and oral inhibition with -0.13 of impact factor can predict weight of people.
