Eating Attitudes Test
Teachers always want us to “raise your hand” when we have a question. Sometimes it’s not that easy. You don’t want everyone to see your hand in the air, and you’re not sure if you really have a question. I understand.
But I’m glad you’re ready to ask some questions about your eating. Determining if you have an eating disorder is worth the time to ask a few questions, because early detection and treatment greatly improve your recovery time.
The SCOFF questionnaire is a simple, screening tool designed to detect eating disorders. This tool was designed to be simple, memorable, easily applied and scored, but not to diagnose. It was developed in London in 2000, which explains the use of “One stone,” but is used worldwide by non-professionals curious about their likelihood of an eating disorder. It does not replace a diagnosis from a professional in the field of eating disorders, but can be used to screen if you are wondering if you have an eating disorder.

Benchmarks of Recovery
Recovery is a journey. And like with most journeys, you are less likely to get off track with a map.
So, years ago, I began looking for a “recovery roadmap”. And I found the perfect one with my friend and colleague, Tamara Pryor, PhD, FAED. She composed this list of benchmarks for me, and I have used them as a reference in my private practice ever since.
