Notes

Abstract: Objective: This study will outline differences between males' and females' disordered eating behaviors in the hopes of lending support to a differential diagnosis for athletes. Methods: The participants were 1,445 Division I NCAA athletes drawn from 11 different schools and 11 different sports. These athletes were asked to fill out portions of the EDI-2, the Body Cathexis Scale, and the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale in addition to providing pertinent demographic information. Results: Contrary to prediction, males reported earlier onsets for most compensatory behaviors. As predicted, however, males tended to use most compensatory behaviors primarily in season, in contrast to females who used them both in and out of season for their sport. Athletic factors seemed to contribute most highly to the onset of eating problems. Discussion: Because of the high rates of disordered eating in this sample and the large role athletics played in these behaviors, a differential diagnosis for athletes is recommended.
