This Food Addiction Quiz, adapted from the Yale Food Addiction Scale, asks about your eating habits in the past year. People sometimes have difficulty controlling their intake of certain foods, such as sweets, sugary drinks, starches, salty snacks, and fatty foods.

1. I find myself consuming certain foods even though I am no longer hungry.
2. I worry about not eating and/or cutting down on certain foods.
3. I feel sluggish or fatigued from overeating.
4. I have had withdrawal symptoms, such as agitation and anxiety when I cut down on certain foods. (Do not include caffeinated drinks such as coffee, tea, cola…)
5. I have spent time dealing with negative feelings from overeating certain foods instead of spending time on important activities, such as time with family, friends, work or recreation.
6. Food and eating issues decrease my ability to function effectively (daily routine, job/school, social/family activities, health difficulties).
7. My behavior with respect to food and eating causes me significant distress.
8. I avoided social situations because I was afraid I would overeat.
9. In the past 12 months, I kept consuming the same types or amounts of certain foods despite significant emotional and/or physical problems related to eating them.
10. In the past 12 months, I have noticed that eating the same amount of food no longer reduces negative emotions or increase pleasure like before.
