Welcome to your EATING ATTITUDES TEST (EAT-26)

This test is an informal tool that will help you assess whether or not you should seek professional help for a possible eating disorder.

(This test is not designed to diagnose an eating disorder, nor to take the place of a professional diagnosis or consultation. It alone does not yield a specific diagnosis of an eating disorder. Neither this, nor any other screening instrument, has been established as highly efficient as the sole means for identifying eating disorders.)
