The restraint scale, three self-rating questionnaires and TFEQ
are widely used in studies regarding eating behaviour.
Some studies have tried to confirm the factorial structure of the TFEQ.
In their reduced version of the TFEQ (TFEQ R-18), they proposed to change the scoring method, switching from dichotomous responses to a 4-point Likert scale.
In Spain, the only adaptation of the original TFEQ was carried out on a non-clinical sample of university female students (Sanchez-Carracedo, Raich, Figueras, Torras, & Mora, 1999).
However, the BSQ was used as an outcome measure as frequently as the EAT, BITE, and TFEQ (Erford et al.
The TFEQ (Stunkard & Messick, 1985) was originally published to measure eating behaviors, specifically along the dimensions of dietary restraint, disinhibition, and hunger.
With regard to the TFEQ, both the Disinhibition and Restraint subscale mean scores were significantly greater among those from the U.
Higher scores on the Bulimia and Dieting subscales of the EAT as well as greater Disinhibition on the TFEQ were significant predictors of cosmetic surgery endorsement in the U.
Dysfunctional dancers were observed to have the lowest EA, energy intake, body fat percentage, and total Z-score, and more abnormal eating behaviors (as demonstrated by TFEQ dietary restraint and EAT-26 scores).
Abnormal eating behaviors, indicated by a score of 11 or more on the TFEQ, were prevalent among the dysfunctional menstrual status dancers.
Eating behavior was characterized using a Turkish translation of the TFEQ (Stunkard & Messick, 1985).
Participants in the high-restraint group displayed a significantly higher TFEQ [F (1, 29) = 7.
