The Dutch Eating Behavior Questionnaire (DEBQ) for assessment of restrained, emotional, and external eating behavior
The norms and Cronbach's alpha coefficients of the scales and also the Pearson's correlation coefficients to assess interrelationships between scales indicate that the scales have a high internal consistency and factorial validity, but their external validity has yet to be investigated.
A short questionnaire for the measurement of habitual physical activity in epidemiological studies.
Investigating the construct validity and the test-retest reliability of a self-administered questionnaire about habitual physical activity in young males and females in three age groups in a Dutch population found that level of education was inverselyrelated to the work index, and positively related to the leisure-time index in both sexes.
The predictive validity of the Dutch Restrained Eating Scale
The present study aims to determine the predictive validity of the 10-item Dutch Restrained Eating Scale. The ultimate criterion of restrained eating is the degree to which an individual eats less
Life events, emotional eating and change in body mass index.
It is concluded that the hypothesis that emotional eating and negative life events would have an interaction effect on change in BMI was confirmed to some extent in the men, but not in the women.
Eating behavior, personality traits and body mass in women.
Of the three eating behavior components, emotional eating was shown to have the clearest relationships with a number of personality traits, and no difference was observed between the eating behavior of latent obese and obese women, but these groups differed as to a numberof personality traits.
Obesity in young Dutch adults: I, socio-demographic variables and body mass index.
Age and socio-economic status were the most important socio-demographic determinants of BMI in young adults in three age groups in a Dutch population, and can be useful in directed prevention of obesity.

Perceptual interactions in mixtures containing bitter tasting substances
It was found that the NaCl suppresses the QH Cl bitterness and that QHCl has almost no suppressive effect on NaCl saltiness, and it was shown that the total intensity of the mixture percept is almost identical to the sum of the intensities of the bitterness and saltiness sensations-within-the-percept.
