The Eating Attitudes Test-26, or EAT-26, is a widely used self-report questionnaire designed to assess eating disorder symptoms and attitudes. The test consists of 26 items that cover various aspects related to eating behaviors, attitudes, and concerns. These items are scored on a Likert scale, where respondents rate the frequency or severity of their experiences or thoughts.

The total score on the EAT-26 can help determine the likelihood of an individual having an eating disorder.

Understand that the EAT-26 is not a diagnostic tool but rather a screening instrument that can indicate the need for further evaluation by a healthcare professional. It is used in research studies, clinical settings, and community screenings to identify individuals who may benefit from intervention or treatment related to disordered eating.
