Abstract

Associations between stressful life events and disordered eating behaviors were examined in 1708 older adolescents. Stressful life events were positively associated with extreme weight control behaviors and binge eating in both male and female respondents, emphasizing the importance of screening for disordered eating behaviors among adolescents who report experiencing stressful life events.
