This quiz can’t replace a clinical diagnosis. If you believe you might have an eating disorder or another condition after taking this test, consider reaching out to a qualified professional about your symptoms.
Despite media depiction, eating disorders can affect anyone, regardless of race, gender identity, sexuality, or body weight.
According to the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA), an estimated 30 million U.S. adults will have an eating disorder at some point in their lives.
Eating disorders can affect your mental and physical health, as well as influence your behaviors around food and body image.
There are different types of eating disorders, each with its own unique symptoms. Common types of eating disorders include:
- anorexia nervosa is a condition marked by restricting how much food you eat
- bulimia nervosa involves binge eating and purging or non-purging (fasting or obsessively exercising) behaviors
- binge eating disorder involves eating large amounts of food and feeling like you can’t stop
- avoidant restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID) is a condition that involves restricting the amount and type of food you eat
- pica involves eating things that aren’t food such as paint
- rumination disorder is a condition marked by rechewing, reswallowing, or spitting out your food
The type of eating disorder you have will determine the type of treatment that’s best for you.
