The EES was constructed to allow a detailed analysis of the relationship between negative mood and disordered eating in obese people with binge eating disorder.The scale included 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).
