Eating Disorders: No Longer Trapped by Food
International Electronic Journal of Health Education
The purpose of this study was to document disordered eating patterns and prevalence rates to assess the current extent of the problem among college students. The Undergraduate Student Health Risk Appraisal Survey, with a Disordered Eating Subscale, generated such information. A randomized stratified study (n=320) of students at a major university ascertained disordered eating patterns, documented diagnosed eating disorders, and correlated body perceptions with calculated Body Mass Index. Surprisingly low prevalence rates were found.
