The sampling method was a cluster among the faculties and available among the students. Data gathering tools were demographic form, the standard questionnaires of DEBQ and CDAS. Data were analyzed by SPSS 26 using descriptive indices and statistical tests.
Findings: The average physical anxiety of corona was higher in non-native students (P<0.043). The average score of clearly labelled emotional eating and external eating was higher in women (P<0.003 and P<0.001). With increasing age, the average score of restrained eating increased (P < 0.009). External eating behavior was higher in unemployed students studying nursing-midwifery (P < 0.017, P < 0.026). the average score of emotional eating, diffused emotional, clear and external eating was higher in people who had unusual eating experience (P<0.001). The average score of emotional eating behavior, diffuse and clear emotion was higher in students who had a history of weight gain in the last 6 months. (P<0.009, P<0.006, P<0.021). There was a direct relationship between BMI and all dimensions of eating behaviors (P<0.001).
Conclusion: There was no relationship between the average anxiety of Covid-19 and emotional eating behavior. In the design of promotion interventions in the field of reducing the anxiety of Corona, non-native students and in the field of emotional eating behaviors, female students, unemployed and studying in nursing-midwifery fields, those who have a high BMI and a history of abnormal eating behavior should be considered.
