This research project investigates the effect of awareness, engagement, and endorsement of the non-diet approaches on several health outcomes and weight stigma.
Non-diet approaches to health aim to challenge dominant appearance ideals (e.g., thinness for women), foster acceptance and respect for all shapes and sizes, reject dieting and diet culture, and eradicate weight stigma. We are interested to see whether engagement with these approaches is related to the way people feel about themselves.
Who can take part in the project?
Any adult (i.e., 18+) without an eating disorder diagnosis can participate in this study.
What will I be asked to do?
Participants will be asked to fill in several surveys online. These surveys contain a variety of questions, including about participants’ (a) awareness, engagement, and endorsement of non-diet movements, (b) weight stigma, (c) body appreciation, (d) depression, anxiety, and stress, (e) eating behaviour, (f) self-esteem, as well as (g) demographics (i.e., age, gender). Participants will also be asked if they wish to partake in future studies, and if so, will be asked for their email address to be contacted regarding these studies.
How much time will the project take?
We expect most participants will take around 20-30 minutes to complete the online survey.
