Binge Eating Scale (BES) comprises 16 items measuring key behavioural, affective and cognitive symptoms that precede or follow a binge eating episodes. Each item contains 3 to 4 statements that are weighted response options, which reflect a range of severity for each measured characteristic. BES is a sound one-dimensional factorial structure, with very good construct reliability and convergent validity. Also, the scale presented very good retest-reliability. Results support the validity and usefulness of the BES as an assessment and screening tool for binge eating in women from the general population.
