Developed by psychologists Ashley Gearhardt, William R. Corbin and Kelly D. Brownell back in 2009, the Yale Food Addiction Scale (YFAS) is the first measuring tool designed specifically to assess signs of addictive-like eating behavior. It's been suggested that an addiction to certain foods could contribute to overeating, resulting in obesity, which is a global issue. With 25 easy-to-answer questionnaire items based on the diagnostic criteria for substance dependence as stated in the DSM-IV (American Psychiatric Association), the YFAS has been embraced by clinical and non-clinical populations worldwide.
In a hurry? Use the modified version of the YFAS (mYFAS), which includes 9 core questions only, so you've got no excuses :)
