SUMMARY: Adherence to a vegetarian diet has been hypothesized to be a factor in the onset and maintenance of disordered eating behavior; however, evidence to support this assumption has been largely mixed. The two studies presented here sought to address the causes of inconsistent findings in previous research, including: small samples of true vegetarians, lack of appropriate operational definitions of “vegetarianism”, and uncertainty about the appropriateness of existing assessments of eating behaviors for semi-vegetarians.
CULTURAL REFERENCE: To Tell the Truth is an American television panel game show created by Bob Stewart and produced by Goodson-Todman Productions that has aired in various forms since 1956. Three challengers are introduced, all claiming to be the central character. The panelists are each given a period of time to question the challengers. After questioning is complete, each member of the panel votes on which of the challengers they believe to be the central character. Once the votes are in, the host asks, "Will the real [person's name] please stand up?"
