Questions to ask yourself about the way you eat

BMJ Group Medical Reference

Have you ever wondered whether your feelings about food are healthy? Here are five questions about eating habits that might be helpful. If you answer yes to two or more questions, you may be more concerned about food and eating than is healthy, and you may have an eating disorder. [6]

  • Do you make yourself sick because you feel uncomfortably full?

  • Do you worry you've lost control over how much you eat?

  • Have you recently lost more than six kilograms (about one stone) in three months?

  • Do you think you are fat even when others say you are too thin?

  • Would you say that food dominates your life?

This questionnaire was developed by St. George's Hospital Medical School in London.
