Eating Patterns and Disorders in a College Population: Are College Women's Eating Problems a New Phenomenon?
Hesse-Biber, Sharlene
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v20 n1-2 p71-89 Jan 1989
Analysis of questionnaires returned by 395 sophomores reveals that the eating difficulties of college women may be a problem that only partially resembles clinical eating disorders. They displayed the behavioral symptoms but not the psychological traits associated with anorexia and bulimia. Diagnosis and treatment issues, and sociocultural implications are discussed.
