Beating the binge

Klik hier voor Nederlands

Binge eating is a common and severe phenomenon with many negative consequences. In order to improve existing treatments for binge eating, we will examine factors that predict binge eating, using systematic assessments in daily life. This information will help us to find out how and when to intervene to prevent binge eating episodes.

(How) can I participate?

To check whether you are eligible to take part in the study, you first need to fill in a short screening survey. This questionnaire also contains further details about the study. All data will be handled and stored confidentially.

  Send us an email at: fpn-btb[at]maastrichtuniversity[dot]nl and we'll inform you once the study starts.

Unfortunately, not everyone can participate. You can NOT take part in the study if you:

  • Do not own a smartphone.
  • Have a Body Mass Index (BMI) below 18.5.
  • Are pregnant.
  • Some psychological problems also rule out participation (for this we refer to the questionnaire).

After you have completed the screening survey, you will be informed right away about the outcome. In case you seem to be eligible for participation, you will be invited for a telephone interview during which final eligibility for the study will be determined.
