We are conducting research into eating behaviours in different groups of people to improve the treatment of eating disorders.

Who can take part?

We are looking for individuals above the age of 18. We are interested in all gender identities and invite cis (when you have the gender you were assigned at birth) and trans, men and women to take part, as well as non-binary or gender-fluid individuals and anyone who does not define themselves by gender.

We are interested in both individuals who have or had not had eating disorders.

What is the purpose of the research?

I am conducting research into eating behaviours in different groups of people to improve the treatment of eating disorders and to further develop the screening of eating behaviours

What does the research involve?

Participants will be asked to complete an online questionnaire lasting 15 minutes which will include questions about eating behaviours and thoughts about food. You will be asked to provide information about your weight and height and any previous potential eating disorder diagnoses. Please note, that you do not need to have a diagnosed eating disorder to take part.

The study is anonymous, you will not be asked to share your name, date of birth or address.

All individuals will be entered into a prize draw to win one of two £50 Amazon vouchers!
