Are You an Athlete Struggling with an Eating Disorder?

Take this interactive quiz to reflect on your thoughts and behaviors regarding food and exercise. It can help you determine if you may be experiencing signs of disordered eating or an eating disorder.

Disclaimer: The ‘Athletes and Eating Disorders’ quiz can only give results based on the questions asked. It relies on your answers, but it’s important to note that these results are for information and education only. They don’t replace professional evaluations or treatment by a qualified medical professional. If you think you need professional help, please reach out as soon as possible.

Do you restrict, in the form of dieting, fasting, skipping meals, using cleanses, or eliminating an entire food group (without any medical rationale)?
Do you purge, in the form of self-induced vomiting, or the use or abuse of laxatives, diet pills, or diuretics?
Do you notice signs of over-training, such as exercising much longer, much more frequently, and much more intensely than what is typically recommended for your sport? Do you also experience extreme anxiety and guilt if you are unable to train?
Do you over-train or over-exercise, in pursuit of the “ideal” athletic look for your sport?
Do you insist on exercising despite having an injury, experiencing pain, or being sick?
Do you constantly compare your body to other players in your sport?
Have you latched on to an enduring and rigid belief that weighing less will improve your strength, stamina, or performance in some way?
Do you pursue a lean, but highly muscular build through the abuse of supplements or steroids?
Have you experienced more injuries (e.g., strains, sprains, splints, etc.), illnesses, or longer recovery times than your teammates?
Do you also struggle with depression, mood swings, restlessness, anxiety, sleep issues, or any other mental health concerns?
