I am a clinical psychology PhD student at the Australian National University. I am seeking to research and ultimately aid in the treatment of Australian women with binge eating/overeating problems.
The research is targeting Australian women and we are interested in targeting rural and regional areas Australia-wide that may not have had the chance to participate in research like this before.
Results of the study will contribute to the treatment of eating disorders, future publications and benefit the participants by providing information resources including contact services and an information booklet on eating disorders.
All participants go in the draw to win one of three $100 gift vouchers (Coles, Myer, Amazon or iTunes).

Hi Carmel, I was interested in your survey until I read that it was about “Binge/Overeating” disorders etc. What a shame. I really wish someone would do a survey on people who eat like a horse (and no do not have any health problems including Thyroid being normal) but has the inability to PUT ON WEIGHT ! I for one do not exercise purely because it would cause me to loose weight, am fed up with forcing myself to eat when I am not hungry just so that I wont again loose weight. I wish I could bottle my DNA or trade it or something. I have met quite a few people in my life who are in the same situation and there are no answers, except to just eat, eat,. So, if, in the future you are interested in the other side of the story, I for one will be watching. FYI, I studied Nutrition for a period of time and followed all the recommendations for putting on weight, even drank those awful drinks that they advise you to take e.g, Ensure, Fortisip etc. Nothing, not even a kg was put on. I gave up. Best wishes with your research. Gillian.
