Subjects and Methods: The study was conducted in Mosul city, 513 students of 4 public intermediate and secondary schools were included. The data were collected through an interview with students who fill the questionnaire; their weight and height were measured following the standard procedures during an interview. Results: The mean Body Mass Index for the total sample was 20.0 kg/m2. The prevalence rates of overweight and obesity based on Centers for Diseases Control criteria were 13.7% and 8.5% respectively while the prevalence rates based on International Obesity Task Force were 17.4%, and 4.9% respectively. The main risk factors associated with overweight and obesity among adolescents were Mother’s education (p=0.0005), number of the siblings (p=0.0006), physical education classes (p=0.044), number of the meals/daily (p=0.0003), regular weight measurement (p=0.0097) and district location inside Mosul city (p=0.0004).
