    • "It has long been suggested that perception of loss of control and perceived excessive intake are more important than the actual amount of food consumed in defining binge eating episodes (Fairburn, 1983). Age of onset and predictors of OBEs and SBEs appear to be almost identical (Stice, Killen, Hayward, & Taylor, 1998). "

    ABSTRACT: This study sought to determine if amount of food consumed is important in defining binge eating episodes in individuals with bulimia nervosa (BN). Women (N = 30) with DSM-IV BN (OBN) and women (N = 25) who would have met DSM-IV criteria for BN except that their binge episodes were not objectively large (SBN) were recruited from the community. Subjects completed telephone interviews and questionnaires. Results demonstrated no significant differences between women with OBN and SBN in levels of dietary restraint, disinhibition, or hunger; no significant differences in general psychopathology; and significant differences in frequency of binge/purge episodes and impulsiveness. Differences in impulsiveness remained after controlling for frequency of binge/purge episodes. These results partially validate current diagnostic criteria for bulimia nervosa and elucidate one factor, impulsiveness, that may be important in understanding objective binge episodes in bulimia nervosa.
