Eating Attitudes Test (EAT-26).


The eating attitudes test (EAT-26) is a 26 item questionnaire. It regards characteristics of eating disorders.

Items are scored in part on a 3-0 scale, with the total scale score calculated as a sum of the items.

A score of more than 20 and a “yes” to any behavioral screening questions suggest concerns involved with eating disorders.
