Factors Associated with Eating Disorders in Male Athletes
TLDR
This study identified the presence of disordered eating patterns and pathogenic weight control behaviors in both male athletes and non-athletes, the difference between them was statistically insignificant. Expand
Elite athletes: effects of the pressure to be thin.
TLDR
The results suggest that athletes do, in fact, have a higher prevalence of eating disorders than non-athletes; however, it is athletes competing in sports which emphasise the importance of a thin body shape or a low body weight who appear to be particularly vulnerable. Expand
Prevalence of Eating Disorders in Elite Athletes Is Higher Than in the General Population
TLDR
The prevalence of EDs is higher in athletes than in controls, higher in female athletes more than in male athletes, and more common among those competing in leanness-dependent and weight-dependent sports than in other sports. Expand
Eating Disorders in the Male Athlete
TLDR
In order to adequately treat eating disorders in the male athlete, it is first essential to identify cases, and all appropriate modalities of therapy, including individual, family and group, as well as psychopharmacotherapy, where appropriate, should be applied. Expand

Personality and psychological correlates of eating disorder symptoms among male collegiate athletes.
TLDR
None of the variables significantly predicted symptomatic status in male athletes, and the literature on predictors of disordered eating symptomatology among female athletes is contrasted with the need for further research to identify other potential predictor of eating disturbance among male athletes.

TLDR
Of those interviewed, none fulfilled diagnostic criteria for anorexia nervosa, but half showed eating disorder of clinical severity, and there was a clear association between high EAT scores and higher scores on all the subscales of the CCEI except the phobic scale. Expand
An epidemiologic study of maladaptive eating attitudes in a Canadian school age population
TLDR
Concerns about eating seemed to increase between the ages of 12 and 13 and remain high thereafter and many of the students who scored high on the EAT were overweight, suggesting that these attitudes or concerns are not specific to anorexia nervosa and/or bulimia. Expand
Binge-eating and vomiting: a survey of a college population.
TLDR
The result suggest that self-induced vomiting is not a necessary symptom for diagnosis of bulimia, and a significant relationship between laxative use and self- induced vomiting was detected. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that a substantial proportion of post-pubertal females (approximately 5%) develop a subclinical form of anorexia nervosa. Expand

TLDR
Factor analyses indicated that bingeing -dieting as a cycle was not a major behavioral pattern among subjects, and Dieting vs. uncontrollable eating emerged as separate constellations of behaviors. Expand

TLDR
The data suggest that both pressures to be slim and achievement expectations are risk factors in the development of anorexia nervosa. Expand
Comparison Between Weight‐Preoccupied Women and Anorexia Nervosa
TLDR
Findings were interpreted as indicating that, although there are some highly weight‐preoccupied females who display psychopathology quite similar to anorexia nervosa, others only superficially resemble patients suffering from serious eating disorders. Expand
Binge-eating and self-induced vomiting in the community. A preliminary study.
TLDR
Binge-eating and self-induced vomiting were strongly associated with disturbed attitudes to food, eating, body weight and shape; and with psychiatric disturbance. Expand

TLDR
Wrestlers may represent a population at risk for the newly reported sports‐induced disturbances in eating and differ primarily on items dealing with fluctuations in body weight and with dieting behaviors. Expand

TLDR
The EAT was validated using 2 groups of female anorexia nervosa patients and female control subjects and total EAT score was significantly correlated with criterion group membership, suggesting a high level of concurrent validity. Expand
