    I believe you got 13 correct.

    17 & 18 are right.

    20 is wrong. It is binge eating disorder (binging with no compensatory method) Bulimia is binging and purging, Anorexia is restriction of calories.

    21 & 22 are correct.

    I think 23 & 25 are correct.

    I think 24 is wrong and I think it is "being willing to try a variety of foods and preparation methods."

  • Operate the 20 minute rule. Eat ones portion-controlled meal then, even if you believe hungry afterwards, wait for 20 minutes to see if you still do. Nine times from 10, you won’t. If you need to do, eat 10 per cent more.
