Binge Eating Scale-BES
General Information
Measure Name: Binge Eating Scale-BES
Measure Type: Scale
Construct: Food intake
Primary Content Area: Obesity
Secondary Content Area: Nutrition
Brief Description: Designed to assess binge eating in obese subjects. Addresses the behavioral features of binge eating as well as the cognitions and feelings associated with binge eating. Shown to discriminate between obese individuals demonstrating no, moderate, or severe binge eating difficulties. The BES was designed before Binge Eating Disorder was conceptualized and although it may be a good screen to detect binge eating, it does not include the needed criteria to diagnose Binge Eating Disorder. It is useful, in addition to other measures and clinical interview, for guiding decisions regarding a patient's appropriateness for weight loss surgery.
