In our recent study, we compared experiences of weight stigma in six nations: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States. These countries share similar societal values that reinforce personal blame for body weight, and do little to challenge weight-based shaming and mistreatment. The participants were 13,996 adults (about 2,000 people per country) who were actively trying to manage their weight.
