A majority of participants were female.This study was administered online where participants five study measures, which included the Self Compassion Scale–Short Form and Mindful Eating Questionnaire.

Self-compassion negatively predicted eating disorder symptomatology (p < 05). (Taylor,Daiss,Krietsch 2015)
