Eating Attitudes Test

The Eating Attitudes Test 26 (EAT-26) is a widely used self-report measure of symptoms and characteristics of eating disorders. Although initially developed as a screening tool, the EAT-26 is now commonly used as both a screener for early detection of eating disorders, as well as a progress monitoring tool for eating disorder treatment.
