Do I have a Binge Eating Disorder?

The following questions may be helpful in identifying if you are experiencing the common symptoms of a Binge Eating Disorder.

The questions are based on the ‘Binge Eating Scale’ rating scale and should only be used as an indicator of whether you may be at risk of having or developing a binge eating disorder. They are not intended to replace a professional diagnosis.

Adults only

This test is designed for people over 18 only. Please do not take the test if you are aged under 18.

Answer Honestly

There is no need to be ashamed if you are having a tough time. Answer the questions as honestly as possible.
