Abstract

This study aimed to elucidate the shared and non-shared behavioral, sociocultural, and personal risk factors underlying binge eating and binge drinking among a sample (n = 1764) of participants from Project EAT at baseline and 10-year follow-up. Longitudinal and cross-sectional analyses revealed a range of risk factors associated with binge eating and binge drinking at 10 years, which varied by gender. The results revealed that risks associated with binge eating and binge drinking often differed, and thus full-scale dual preventive interventions for concurrent binge eating and binge drinking may be less effective. However, general prevention and intervention programs may emphasize shared risk factors.
