eating
  • Within the last 30 days, have you deliberately restricted food intake for several consecutive days?
  • Within the last 30 days, have you restricted food intake then, often during a moment of anxiety or tension, consumed a large quantity of food, even going to different restaurants to hide your behavior?
  • Within the last 30 days, have you consumed a large quantity of food in a short period of time and experienced feeling “out-of-control” or a compulsion to continue eating even though you were not hungry?
  • Do you feel guilty after you eat?
  • Within the last 30 days, have you deliberately vomited food to avoid weight gain?
  • Within the last 30 days, have you used laxatives beyond their recommended dosage level? Has your menstrual cycle been disrupted by disordered eating?  Do you have bone density problems?
  • Do you have a preoccupation with food?  Does food, thoughts about food, or meal planning control much of your daily energy?
  • Are you terrified of gaining weight?
  • Do you review your appearance in the mirror seeking specific markers of weight loss success or failure?  Are these “markers” realistic?  FYI- “thigh gap” is not
  • Do you struggle to eat in front of others or attempt to disguise how little you have eaten?
