SCOFF Questionnaire by Morgan, Reid & Lacey (adapted) Do you feel like you sometimes lose or have lost control over how you eat? Do you ever make yourself sick because you feel uncomfortably full? Do you believe yourself to be fat, even when others say you are too thin? Does food or thoughts about food dominate your life? Do thoughts about your body or weight dominate your life? Have others become worried about your weight and/or eating? Two or more "yes" answers strongly indicates the presence of disordered eating.
