This meta-analysis assessed the strength of the association
between correlates of shape and weight over-evaluation across
binge eating disorder and mixed eating disorder samples.
Across 32 studies, over-evaluation correlates were divided
into demographic, eating pathology, or psychosocial. Shape
and weight over-evaluation was associated with higher eating
pathology and psychosocial impairment. The method of
assessment (interview versus self-report questionnaire) moderated
some of the relationships. Over-evaluation was unrelated
to demographics and treatment outcome. These findings highlight
the importance of addressing shape and weight overevaluation
during treatment, and support the idea of using
shape and weight over-evaluation as a severity specifier for
binge eating disorder.
