Note: Eating disorders are potentially life-threatening disorders, which can be overcome with the proper information, support, and counseling. While online assessments are a great way to see if there may be a cause for concern, it does not replace an assessment with an eating disorder professional. As a next step, we recommend that you have an in-person or over-the-phone assessment with an expert who is trained in the detection and treatment of eating disorders. We urge you to contact Center for Discovery, a treatment program within our Discovery Behavioral Health network. Center for Discovery specializes in eating disorder treatment and can provide you a free assessment, which includes checking your insurance benefits on your behalf.

How are the results scored?
38 or less- Strong tendencies toward anorexia nervosa.
39 to 50- Strong tendencies toward bulimia nervosa.
50 to 60- Weight conscious. May or may not have tendencies toward an eating disorder. Not likely to have anorexia or bulimia nervosa. May have tendencies toward compulsive overeating, obesity, or binge-eating disorder.
Over 60- Extremely unlikely to have anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa, however, scoring over 60 does not rule out tendencies toward compulsive eating, binge-eating disorder, or obesity.
If you scored below 50, it would be wise for you to 1) seek more information about anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa and 2) contact a counselor, pastor, teacher, or physician in order to find out if you have an eating disorder and, if you do, talk about what kind of assistance would be best for you.
If you scored between 50 and 60, it would be a good idea for you to talk to a counselor, pastor, teacher, or physician in order to find out if you have an eating disorder and, if you do, how to get some help.
If you scored over 60, but have questions and concerns about the way you eat and/or your weight, it would be a good idea for you to talk to a counselor, pastor, teacher, or physician in order to determine if you have an eating disorder and, if you do, how to get some help.
