The present study was designed to examine the factorial nature of the Three Factor Eating Questionnaire-Restraint Scale (TFEQ-R) and to compare the relationship of both the Restraint Scale (RS) and TFEQ-R to current dieting, history of dieting, disinhibition, self-esteem and restrained drinking in 144 females. A principal component analysis identified three interpretable factors: Emotional/Cognitive Concern for Dieting, Calorie Knowledge, Behavioral Dieting Control. Only Emotional/Cognitive Concern for Dieting equated with RS as both measures correlated with self-esteem and restrained drinking. Results are discussed in light of other proposed models of dietary restraint and in relation to two recent factors which have been identified in the drinking literature, Cognitive Emotional Control and Cognitive Behavioral Control.
