The purpose of this study was to examine the role self-compassion has on stress and eating behavior. Ninety-one participants completed a series of online surveys that measured student life stress, self-compassion, and eating behaviors. Results suggest that self-compassion did not moderate the relationship between stress and eating behavior. Self-compassion was found as a mediator, indicating that the effect stress has on eating behavior can be explained by self-compassion. Students with low stress tended to have high self-compassion, which was linked with healthier eating habits.
