Abstract: Sociocultural pressures to be thin, such as those from the thin-ideal in the media, have been implicated in the etiology of eating disorders. Pro-eating disorder (pro-ed) website text content may convey the thin-ideal in much the same way as thin-ideal media images. In a pretest-posttest experimental study female participants were exposed to either text content from pro-eating disorder websites or control materials from nutritional advice books. Condition was significantly associated with posttest state body dissatisfaction, but this was due to lowered body dissatisfaction after control group exposure rather than heightened body dissatisfaction after pro-ed group exposure. However, participants in the experimental condition with initial vulnerabilities (high body dissatisfaction and thin ideal internalization) were more negatively affected by the pro-ed text than participants without initial vulnerabilities (although this association was not significant).
