Stress Eating and Weight Stigma

Stress Eating and Weight Stigma

We live in a society that is obsessed with weight loss and dieting. Weight stigma and fat-shaming pervade our everyday lives– turning eating into something that is no longer an enjoyable act, but one of scrutiny and stress. Driven by a love for food and a true foodie at heart, UCLA Associate Professor in Psychology Janet Tomiyama believes that there are ways to get healthy without ever mentioning weight. She runs the Dieting, Stress and Health or DiSH Lab at UCLA that focuses on two main drivers of why we eat (or don’t eat): stress and weight stigma.
