Our study was conducted in the Hashemite University of Jordan to assess the nutritional status of students. A sample of 304 students was taken and body weight, height, triceps skinfold thickness, waist, hips circumferences and fat percentage were measured. Body mass index and waist hip ratio were calculated and hematocrit was measured, food frequency questionnaire was filled.
