Do You Have an Eating Disorder?
Due to an increase in public awareness, ANOREXIA NERVOSA
(key symptoms: refusal to maintain a minimally healthy body weight, intense fear
of gaining weight, and a significant disturbance in the perception of the shape or size
of ones body) and BULIMIA NERVOSA (key symptoms: binge eating- eating what the
individual considers to be too much food in a way that feels out of control- followed by
inappropriate compensatory behaviors (e.g. self-induced vomiting, excessive exercise)
are becoming more and more openly acknowledged.
The following questionnaire will tell you whether or not you think you behave in a way
that indicates that you have tendencies toward anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa.
Answer the questions below honestly. Respond as you are now, not the way you
used to be or the way you would like to be. For an accurate score, do not leave
any questions blank (unless instructed to do so).
