Abstract

Objective: Although self-esteem and overconcern with body shape and weightare considered to be closely connected in bulimia nervosa, little empirical research has been done to investigate the alleged link. Method: In this study, we examined experimentally whether overconcern with body shape and weight was connected with self-esteem in an analogue sample of high restrained eaters by means of a subliminal lexical decision task. Results: It could indeed be demonstrated that low self-esteem and overconcern with body shapeand weight are associated in high restrained eaters: after priming low self-esteem the accessibility of subliminally presented body shape and weight stimuli was increased. The effect was not found with a supraliminal lexicaldecision cask. Discussion: Apparently, the automatic, nonconscious processing of body shape and weight words was influenced in high restrained eaterswith a low state self-esteem, whereas the strategic, conscious processing was not As soon as the body shape and weight stimuli were processed consciously, the initial increased accessibility was countered and the effect disappeared.
