We read with great interest the article by Styk et al.1 In their study, the authors found that persistence is associated with body image which evaluated by subjective body weight assessment. In addition, a positive correlation between the distractor resistance index and body mass index (BMI) was found. We wish to express our opinion on the topic and statistical method in this research.
