Disordered eating in adolescence and young adulthood and its consequences for BMI trajectory in midlife


Disordered eating (binge eating) and dieting is common among young women. It has been shown that clinically diagnosed eating disorders often have very serious health complications but it is not known what the long term consequences of the more prevalent, milder forms of disordered eating are. We will study how disordered eating in childhood, adolescence and young adult age is related to women’s later body size, underweight, overweight, obesity and body satisfaction.
