A comparison of the validity of three scales for the assessment of dietary restraint.

A factor analysis showed that the three restraint scales measure different components of the restraint construct, and a high score on the RS was closely related to consequences of mostly unsuccessful dieting, but not to successful overall caloric restriction in everyday life.

Emotional eating and how it relates to dietary restraint, disinhibition, and perceived hunger

During the past decade much research on eating disorders has been devoted to instrument development. Herman and Polivy's 10-item Restraint Scale has been the most widely used instrument, but it has

Measurement of dietary restraint: Validity tests of four questionnaires

Regimented and lifestyle restraint in binge eating disorder.

Factor analyses indicated a two-factor solution, interpreted as "Regimented" and "Lifestyle" restraint, whereas stepwise regression analyses revealed that Regimented restraint was more predictive of eating pathology, whereas Lifestyle restraint appeared to be protective of eating problems.

Relationship between three factor eating questionnaire‐restraint subscale and food intake

The results suggest that the TFEQ Restraint scale is a useful measure of dietary restriction, especially among individuals with eating disorders.

The measurement of dietary restraint, disinhibition and hunger: an examination of the factor structure of the Three Factor Eating Questionnaire (TFEQ)

The explanation of disordered eating behaviour is likely to be refined more by specific constructs, such as those presented, rather than by the more general constructs measured by the original TFEZ-R, TFEQ-D and TFEq-H scales.

Feeling Fat Yet Unconcerned: Self-reported Overweight and the Restraint Scale

Depression, restraint and eating behavior.

Anxiety, restraint, and eating behavior.

The results indicated that although some individuals may eat more when anxious, there is little empirical support for the notion that eating serves to reduce anxiety, and the psychosomatic hypothesis of obesity had failed to find confirmation.

Weight, restraint, cognitions and counterregulation.

Restrained and unrestrained eating.

Nisbett's model of obesity implies that individual differences in relative deprivation within obese and normal weight groups should produce corresponding within-group differences in eating behavior, but consideration was given to the concept of "restraint" as an important behavioral mechanism affecting the expression of physiologically-based hungar.
