This thesis explores the influence of public health anti-obesity campaigns on risk factors for eating disorders using a mixed-methodological approach. Findings from all included studies indicate public health campaigns addressing overweight/obesity can negatively influence eating disorder risk factors in audiences. In particular, those at risk of/diagnosed with an eating disorder. Future research directions and recommendations to minimise further potential harm are provided.
