Abstract

van Strien et al. [van Strien, T., Engels, R. C. M. E., van Leeuwe, J., Snoek, H. M. (2005). The Stice model of overeating: tests in clinical and non-clinical samples. Appetite, 45, 205-213] extended the negative affect pathway of Stice's dual pathway model of overeating Stice [Stice, E. (1994). Review of the evidence for a sociocultural model of bulimia nervosa and an exploration of the mechanisms of action. Clinical Psychology Review, 14(7), 633-661] successfully with the variables lack of interoceptive awareness and emotional eating. This study aimed to replicate these findings in a sample of female college students with food consumption as the measure for overeating. Structural equation modeling was used to test the original and the extended model and both models fitted. In the extended model, the relation between negative affect and consumption seemed to run only via lack of interoceptive awareness and emotional eating.
