Abstract

Objective: To investigate whether the prevalence of bulimic behaviors and weight control practices changed between 1990 and 1997 Method: In November 1997 we surveyed a representative sample of 2,130 adult subjects in West Germany and 2,155 subjects in East Germany. We asked subjects about binge eating, vomiting, use of laxatives, appetite suppressants and diuretics, and about dieting, weighing, and exercise. As the same questions had been used in a representative survey (N = 1,773) in autumn 1990 in West Germany, trendcomparisons for prevalence between 1990 and 1997 are possible. Results: The prevalence of severe eating binges twice a week dropped nonsignificantly between 1997 and 1990 from 3.1% to 2.4% in men and from 2.3% to 1.3% in women. In men, the prevalence of binge eating disorder dropped nonsignificantly from 2.4% to 1.5%, the prevalence of bulimia nervosa from 2.1% to 1.1%. In women, the prevalence of binge eating disorder dropped nonsignificantly from 1.5% to 0.7% and that of bulimia nervosa from 2.4% to 1.1%. Conclusion:The prevalence of bulimic behaviors decreased slightly during 1990 and 1997 in the West German population. (C) 2001 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
