Self-regulation in Eating Behaviours Scale (SEREB-20): A Validation Study
About this study
This research project will be examining whether the Self-Regulation of Eating Behaviours 20 (SEREB 20) is a reliable and sound test that can be used with individuals whose body mass index (BMI) is greater than 25 and therefore meet the criteria for being overweight. This project will examine whether scores on this test show a relationship with scores on other tests that measure emotional appetite, impulsivity, attention to detail and ability to mentally shift between tasks, habits, lack of awareness, and depression, anxiety, and stress.

• Currently residing in Australia
• Ability to read and write in English
• You have a Body Mass Index (BMI) equal to or greater than 25
• You are currently seeking support through a weight management clinic or program or a health professional such as a dietician, your general practitioner, or a psychologist.
If you meet any of the following exclusion criteria, we will not ask you to continue completing the survey:
• If you are pregnant or breastfeeding
• If you have any chronic health problems impacting your weight
• If you have had bariatric surgery in the past 12 months
• If you have had any head injuries and/or neurological conditions
For those who do not have these conditions, you will then be asked questions around mood, habit, flexibility in thinking, attentive eating behaviours, impulse control, and your ability to regulate your eating.
It is important to note that this survey is not designed to be used to diagnose yourself. Your name and/or any other identifying information will not be used. This is to ensure that you will remain anonymous and arenot identifiable in the report. You can complete this study on either a desktop or using a mobile device.
At the end of the study, you will have the option to open a separate link and enter your email address to enter a prize draw with a 1 in 200 chance to win one of two $50 Amazon gift cards. This separate link will help ensure that your email address will be kept separately from your survey data to protect your identity.
