dc.description.abstractThere is evidence for cultural variation in the foods that may be craved. We have designed and tested, in a sample of 234 participants, a UK-specific version of the Food Craving Inventory. A four-factor structure comprising of sweet foods, fast foods, high fat, and complex carbohydrates was extracted. The final scale was analogous with the original US scale, and shared similar associations with external eating and dietary restraint, although no association was found with BMI. The measure has potential to contribute to the development of theoretical understanding of food craving, and to measuring outcomes in intervention studies and clinical samples.
