Average age of females were 17.52 and males were 17.90 in young wrestlers who participated in the study. There were statistically significant differences between both healthy eating behavior scores and unhealthy eating behavior scores of female and male wrestlers according to gender (p <0.05). According to gender, female and male students' eating behaviors find statistically different (p< 0.05). Significant differences were found in healthy and unhealthy eating behavior scores of young wrestlers according to their weight reduction status (p <0.001). Healthy eating behavior scores were significantly higher in those who sometimes lost weight in research than those who often lost weight. Unhealthy eating behavior is higher in those who frequently lose weight. Eating behaviors were sometimes 168.14 in those who lost weight and 143.32 in those who often lost weight.
