Title / Titel Estimation of meal portions sizes in anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa
PDF Abstract (PDF, 14 KB)
Summary / Zusammenfassung Pathological concern regarding one’s weight and weight gain is a crucial feature of anorexia nervosa.
Anorexia nervosa patients often claim that they are uncertain regarding the amount of food
they should eat. The present study investigated whether individuals with anorexia nervosa show an
altered estimation of meal portion sizes and whether this estimation is modulated by an intent-to-eat
instruction (where patients are asked to imagine having to eat the presented meal), meal type and meal
portion size.
