Food addiction quiz
This is an abbreviated version of the Yale Food Addiction Scale, provided by scale co-author Ashley Gearhardt, now an assistant professor at the University of Michigan.
The following questions ask about your eating habits in the past year. People sometimes have difficulty controlling their intake of certain foods such as sweets, starches, salty snacks, fatty foods, sugary drinks, and others.
If you choose the "correct" answers, that may mean you have an addiction to food. To meet the food addiction threshold you need to answer "correctly" for either question 6 or 7 AND answer "correctly" for 3 or more of these questions: 1–5, 8–9.
