Unlike traditional interventions, Internet interventions allow for objective tracking and examination of the usage of program components. Student Bodies (SB), an online eating disorder (ED) prevention program, significantly reduced ED attitudes/behaviors in college-aged women with high body image concerns, and reduced the development of EDs in some higher risk subgroups. The authors investigated how adherence measures were associated with ED attitudes and behaviors after treatment. Female SB… 
Participant adherence to the Internet-based prevention program StudentBodies™ for eating disorders — A review
TLDR
Adherence to StudentBodies™ proved to be high across a number of trials, settings and countries, and it is likely that adherence will be distinctly lower in the general public than in research settings, and intervention effects will turn out smaller.
Internet‐delivered eating disorder prevention: A randomized controlled trial of dissonance‐based and cognitive‐behavioral interventions
TLDR
Results suggest that both DBI-I and CBI-I are effective at reducing eating disorder risk factors in a high-risk, predominantly minority population relative to no intervention.
Internet-based preventive intervention for reducing eating disorder risk: A randomized controlled trial comparing guided with unguided self-help.
TLDR
Results suggest the guided discussion group improves the efficacy of Student Bodies in reducing weight/shape concerns in college students at high risk for an eating disorder.
Effects of internet-delivered eating disorder prevention on reward-based eating drive: A randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Preliminary support for DBI-I as a strategy for reducing reward-based eating drive in a high-risk population relative to no intervention is provided.
Adherence as a predictor of dropout in Internet-based guided self-help for adults with binge-eating disorder and overweight or obesity.
TLDR
Patients at risk for dropout from GSH-I can be reliably identified via monitoring of objective adherence and may be provided with additional interventions to prevent dropout.
Treating eating disorders : the feasibility, acceptability, and clinical outcomes of a computer-assisted intervention based on acceptance and commitment therapy
TLDR
Computer-assisted intervention can be an effective form of treatment for patients, whose motivational level and stage of the disorder are suitable for self-reliant working and some personal support is however needed.
Adherence to the MoodGYM program: outcomes and predictors for an adolescent school-based population.
TLDR
Preliminary support for the positive relationship between program adherence and outcomes in a school environment is provided and the identification of significant predictors of adherence will assist in identifying the type of user who will engage most with an online depression prevention program.
Self-Help Interventions for the Treatment of Binge Eating
Self-help interventions (SHIs) represent established psychological treatments for binge-eating disorder (BED) and bulimia nervosa (BN) with demonstrated short- and long-term efficacy. Implemented via
Gamification and Adherence to Web-Based Mental Health Interventions: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Further research is needed to improve understanding of gamification features on adherence and engagement in order to inform the design of future Web-based health interventions in which adherence to treatment is of concern.

Effectiveness of an Internet-based program for reducing risk factors for eating disorders.
TLDR
This program provides evidence for the feasibility and effectiveness of providing health education by means of the Internet and a significant improvement in body image and a decrease in drive for thinness.
Effectiveness of a Computer-Based Interactive Eating Disorders Prevention Program at Long-Term Follow-Up
TLDR
The present study suggests that the use of Student Bodies may reduce risk of eating and body image concerns over the long term, and that moderation of discussion groups may not be essential for successful outcomes.
Improving Compliance in On-line, Structured Self-help Programs: Evaluation of an Eating Disorder Prevention Program
TLDR
Compliance rates from four iterations of Student Bodies, an 8–10 week computer assisted health education program for the prevention of eating disorders in college-aged women, were measured and were significantly correlated with improvement on outcome.
Prevention of eating disorders in at-risk college-age women.
TLDR
This is the first study to show that EDs can be prevented in high-risk groups, and an 8-week, Internet-based cognitive-behavioral intervention can significantly reduce weight and shape concerns for up to 2 years and decrease risk for the onset of EDs, at least in some high- risk groups.
Eating disorder prevention programs: a meta-analytic review.
TLDR
The results identify promising prevention programs and delineate sample, format, and design features that are associated with larger effects, but they suggest the need for improved methodological rigor and statistical modeling of trials and enhanced theoretical rationale for interventions.
Validity of the Eating Disorder Examination Questionnaire (EDE-Q) in screening for eating disorders in community samples.
TLDR
The EDE-Q has good concurrent validity and acceptable criterion validity, and the measure appears well-suited to use in prospective epidemiological studies.

TLDR
Investigation of the internal consistency and test-retest reliability of the Eating Disorder Examination-Self-Report Questionnaire Version (EDE-Q), a 41-item measure adapted from the EDE, supports the psychometric adequacy of the Ede.
Pursuit of thinness and onset of eating disorder symptoms in a community sample of adolescent girls: a three-year prospective analysis.
TLDR
This paper examines level of weight preoccupation and other variables prospectively associated with age of onset of eating disorder symptoms over a 3-year interval in a community sample of young adolescent girls to establish a rational basis for the choice of a prevention intervention target.

TLDR
Results from a randomized experiment with adolescent girls suggest instead that dietary restriction curbs bulimic symptoms and appears antithetical to dietary restraint theory.
The Effectiveness of Web-Based vs. Non-Web-Based Interventions: A Meta-Analysis of Behavioral Change Outcomes
TLDR
An improvement in outcomes for individuals using Web-based interventions to achieve the specified knowledge and/or behavior change for the studied outcome variables showed an improvement in outcome size comparisons.
