Background: Psychological well-being is a multidimensional concept that is typically defined as a mixture of positive affective states, such as satisfaction and functioning with optimum life efficiency. The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between weight efficacy lifestyle dimensions and perceived parental styles dimensions with psychological well-being among university students. Methods: The statistical population of this correlational study was all undergraduate and master students of Azarbaijan Shahid Madani University in the academic year 2016-2017, of whom 180 students were selected through multi-stage random cluster sampling. They were assessed by Clark’s Weight Efficacy Life Style (WEL), Grolnick’s Perceptions of Parents Scales (POPS), and Keyes & Magyar-Moe’s Psychological Well-being questionnaires. In addition, the demographic questionnaire was completed. Data were analyzed by SPSS V. 24 using descriptive statistics and simultaneous regression. Results: According to the findings of the study, there was a positive and significant relationship between weight efficacy lifestyle and its two subscales of negative emotions and physical discomfort with psychological well-being, and there was a negative and significant relationship between perceived parenting style and all its subscales with psychological well-being. However, 36% of changes in psychological well-being were predicted by physical discomfort, mother’s autonomy support, and mother’s warmth.
