MALDONADO, Camila  e  NAZAR, Gabriela. Self-compassion as a moderator between body appreciation and eating styles in emerging adult women. Ter Psicol [online]. 2021, vol.39, n.1, pp.63-80. ISSN 0718-4808.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-48082021000100063.

Background:

The ideal of beauty associated with thinness challenges body image and eating behavior, particularly in young women, thus to identify psychological resources that promote healthy eating behavior can be helpful.

Objective:

to examine the relationship between body appreciation, intuitive eating and maladaptive eating styles (contextual, emotional and restrictive), and the role of self-compassion in these relationships.

Method:

descriptive-correlational study in which 740 women, between 18 and 30 years old, answered the Body Appreciation Scale (BAS-2), Intuitive Eating (IES-2), the Dutch Eating Behavior Questionnaire (DEBQ) and Self-Compassion Scale (SCS). Regressions and Moderation Analyses were used to examine the role of self-compassion in the interaction of body appreciation, intuitive eating and eating behaviors.

Results:

Body appreciation and self-compassion were positively related to intuitive eating and negatively to emotional and external eating. Self-compassion played a moderating role in the interaction between body appreciation and intuitive eating (β = ,006, ES = ,0056), emotional (β = -,09, ES = ,004), and external (β = -,007, ES = ,003), but not with restrictive eating (β = -,022, ES = ,004).

Conclusion:

These findings confirm the buffering role of psychological resources, specifically, self-compassion, in the influence that low body appreciation exerts on maladaptive eating styles, and also shed light of the importance of psychological resources to manage social pressures to the body image in young women.
