The qIAT used in this study is conceptually based on the qIAT by Yovel and Friedman [34] and Izquierdo et al. [33]. The four categories pro-dieting vs. non-dieting statements and true vs. false statements each comprised five statements that could be categorized accordingly, e.g., “I am terrified of gaining weight” vs. “My weight rarely enters my mind” and “I’m participating in an experiment” vs. “I’m climbing a steep mountain”. In this case, a faster categorization of a pro-dieting statement into the pro-dieting category, when combined with the category true statements, would be interpreted as implicit FP. In this study, the qIAT demonstrated an internal consistency of r = .70 (p < .001), which is in line with previous studies [34].
