Abstract

New patients to the Weight Management Clinic at GWU MFA were the participants of this study. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the rate of new patients whom had binge eating like habits. All new patients were self-administered the surveys, which included a consent form, a demographics survey, and an eating habits questionnaire. Approximately, 50 participants completed the study and data will be analyzed by the team with a statistician. The data will be analyzed looking for variables that correlated between the patient's demographics and results of the eating habits questionnaire. Patients who obtained greater than 18 points on the eating habits questionnaire were given a handout on resources in the area to help with habits that are often seen in binge eating. They were not diagnosed with an eating disorder from this study. The key statistical analysis will focus on the rate of participants that score >18 on the eating habits survey, and gender, BMI, psychiatric condition, and alcohol intake, correlates with the eating habits score.
