The EESwas constructed to allow a detailed analysis of the relationship between negative mood and disordered eating in obese people with binge eating disorder; one of the most frequently used measures of emotional eating in clinical populations. 25 items on distinct negative emotions (e.g., discouraged, irritated, angry) that comprised three subscales – anger/frustration, anxiety, and depression. The desire to eat in response to each emotion is rated on a five-point scale (no desire, a small desire, a moderate desire, a strong urge, an overwhelming urge to eat).
