ALVEAR-FERNANDEZ, Carolina et al. Eating styles and their association with body appreciation, weight bias internalization and self-compassion. Ter Psicol [online]. 2021, vol.39, n.1, pp.123-144. ISSN 0718-4808.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-48082021000100123.

Background:

The assessment of thinness and bias towards overweight people can promote body appreciation and maladaptive eating styles; self-compassion could act mitigating these relationships.

Objective:

to understand the association between body appreciation, weight bias internalization and eating styles (ES), as well as the role of a self-compassionate attitude in body appreciation.

Method:

Correlational, cross-sectional study, with 837 adults living in Chile. In the data analysis, multiple regression and mediation analysis were used.

Results:

Body appreciation and internalization of weight bias predicted emotional ES (β = -.126; p < .001 and β = .146; p < .001, respectively), external ES (β = -.095; p < .001 and β = .064; p < .001, respectively) and restrictive ES (β = -.134; p < 001 and β = .258; p < .001, respectively). Self-compassion mediated the relationship between internalization of weight bias and body appreciation (β = -.133, CI: [- .157, -.11]).

Conclusions:

The assessment of the body and the weight bias internalization influence eating styles, and a compassionate attitude towards oneself intervenes in the effect of the weight bias on the devaluation towards the own body.
