The questions on this form are part of a validated measure of eating disorder symptoms known as the Eating Attitudes Test (Garner, Olmsted, Bohr, & Garfinkel, 1982).
This measure is not used to diagnose an individual with an eating disorder. Rather, it can help to identify individuals who may benefit from a closer examination of current eating and weight concerns and to potentially guide them towards treatment.
Once you've answered all the questions, your score will appear at the bottom of the page. For each question, please mark one answer that best describes you.
Your assessment score will appear here once you've answered all of the questions.
Your assessment score is [unrated].
If your score is:
Between one and 19: You seem to have a healthy relationship with food. But be honest with yourself. If you scored below 20 but you constantly struggle with your body image and eating, then you may want to seriously consider seeking additional support and services.
Between 20 and 78: A score of 20 or above traditionally indicates the need for additional consultation regarding eating and weight concerns.
