First paragraph: It has come to our attention that there are two errors in our recent article . First, the extended International Obesity Task Force (IOTF) classifications —including age and gender adjustments for 11–17-year-olds—were used to categorize participants’ Body Mass Index (BMI) as underweight, healthy weight, overweight, or obese. We have determined, however, that a minority of female participants aged 11–17 years old were accidentally assigned the incorrect IOTF grade for their BMI. Second, while investigating this, it was found that a miscommunication/misunderstanding within the research team also necessitates two minor clarifications to the methods.
