What is Weight Stigma?

Weight stigma, also known as weight bias or weight-based discrimination, is discrimination or stereotyping based on an individual’s body weight.

It can increase dissatisfaction with one’s body, and is a known risk factor in the development of eating disorders.

Moreover, weight stigma is also linked to feelings of:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Low self-esteem

  • Poor body image

Perceptions of weight stigma may also cause decreases in physical health and life span.

This is due, in part, to chronic stress, which increases inflammation and oxidative stress in the body, making it even hard to lose weight or stay motivated to try and lose weight.

Chronic stress also increases the desire to eat high-calorie foods while reducing hormones in the body that tell you that you’ve had enough to eat.

Further, individuals who experience weight stigma also are known to:

  • Engage in more frequent binge eating

  • Be at an increased risk for eating disorder symptoms
