Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the Eating Attitudes Test (EAT), a measure originally designed to measure pathological eating in the 1970s, is related to healthy eating and/or normal dieting today. This study included the EAT, a measure of healthy/unhealthy eating, a measure of normal dieting, a measure of pathological eating, and a demographics form. These questionnaires were administered to 206 undergraduate women. Results indicated that most factors on the EAT are highly correlated with normal dieting and several factors are correlated with healthy eating. It may be that researchers have been questioning the validity of the EAT because it is measuring normal dieting and, to some extent, healthy eating. Future research should investigate this issue further.
