Before you take the assessment, please remember:
The scale is not a diagnosis tool. It is only a means to check in with our current relationship with food and body.
High scores are not always alerting! Screening studies have shown that some people with high scores do not have disordered eating. But it is important to still check-in.
Regardless of your score, if you have concerns interfering with your daily functioning, please feel free to reach out to us.
Thank you for filling the Disordered Eating Attitude Scale (DEAS).
We would like to inform you that your answers are confidential and will not be shared with anybody else except researchers at Freed.
If your score is < 28
If your score is > 45
The score does not indicate eating or weight-related concerns. You might have a healthy relationship with your body at the moment.
The score suggests that you might have concerns about eating and body weight. It might be that you are experiencing thoughts around food that are not always comfortable or easy on you.
The score suggests that you are concerned about eating and body weight or have stressful eating behaviours. Your responses suggest that you might be suffering or are at risk of disordered eating.
