Although eating disorder intervention studies typically rely on the Eating Disorder Examination (EDE), a four-week retrospective interview, to measure behavioral change, reliability of this measure has not been sufficiently demonstrated. Studies of autobiographical memory suggest that multiple cognitive processes may bias retrospective recall of disordered eating behaviors. This pilot study was designed to examine reliability of the EDE by examining correspondence between the EDE and Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA) of five disordered behaviors (bingeing, vomiting, laxatives, diuretics, and exercise). With EMA, target behaviors are recorded on a hand-held computer immediately after they occur. Participants will include 15 women with anorexia nervosa (AN) or bulimia nervosa (BN). To date, five BN and three AN participants completed the 30-day EMA recording. The EDE was administered within 48 hours of EMA completion. Preliminary results show higher exercise frequency when measured by EDE (M=1.3) compared to EMA (M=2.5, paired t=-2.6, p=.04) and higher bingeing frequency on the EDE (M=7.5) compared to EMA (M=2.6, paired t=-1.9, p=.10). No differences in frequency were found between methods for vomiting, laxative, and diuretic use. These findings raise questions about the reliability of the EDE and use of retrospective recall to measure eating disorder intervention outcomes and behavioral change.
