Take a Test

It is in no way a test to determine the exact eating ‘disorder’ he or she may or may not have. This test is simply created to help you understand that the pattern of behaviors you have may be related to a specific type of eating disorder. No test can singly determine any eating disorder. This can only be conducted by an eating disorder professional, such as a therapist, a medical doctor, a dietitian, or a psychiatrist. If you would like help finding such a professional, please see the Professional Resources section on this web site.”]
