Eating Disorder Test – Do I Have an Eating Disorder?

This online test should not be used for diagnosis. It cannot confirm if you have eating disorder or not. Only a doctor or a mental health expert can really figure out what you should do next.

However, you can use this test to monitor your symptoms and help your doctor see if your behavior changes between visits. This test can show if you might have common eating disorder symptoms, but it can't give a complete checkup.

You shouldn't use this test to diagnose yourself or choose a treatment on your own.

Understanding Eating Habits

Everyone has their own habits when it comes to eating, like what foods they like, how much they eat, and when they feel hungry. But sometimes, people might find themselves eating a lot more or a lot less than they usually do, and it might make them feel upset or worried. It’s important to notice when eating habits start to make someone feel bad, as this could be a sign that they need to talk to someone who can help.

How Do You Feel About Food?

For some people, thinking about food can make them feel really happy or really stressed. Some might worry a lot about the kinds of food they eat, how much they eat, or how eating certain foods might affect their body. It's okay to think about what you eat, but if thoughts about food make you feel scared or sad, it might be a good idea to share these feelings with a grown-up you trust.

Your Feelings and Your Body

How we feel about our bodies can change a lot, especially as we grow up. Sometimes, people might feel really happy with how they look, and other times, they might not feel so great. But if someone starts to feel really unhappy with their body all the time and it makes them change how they eat or exercise in extreme ways, it could be a sign that they need some support and someone to talk to.

Talking About Eating and Feelings

Sometimes, talking about how we eat and how we feel about our bodies can be hard. It might feel like no one else understands, or we might be scared of what others will say. But talking about these things is really important because it’s the first step in getting help if we need it. There are adults, like doctors, teachers, and family members, who care and can help us understand our feelings and what to do next.
