Objectives: We adapted the Three-Factor Eating Questionnaire Revised 21-item (TFEQ-R21). Our main goals were to verify the original factorial structure of TFEQ-R21 in a Hungarian sample, to conduct the psychometric analysis of this instrument, and to explore potential determinants of eating behaviors. Method: Research design was a cross-sectional, questionnaire study. Research participants were 262 female students (mean of age=21.7 years, SD=2.78, mean of BMI=20.8 SD 2.93). Measures: Hungarian version of Three-Factor Eating Questionnaire Revised 21-item, Trait Anxiety Inventory, Body Attitude Test. Results: The confirmatory factor analysis verified the original structure of TFEQ-R21 in our Hungarian sample. Scales are Uncontrolled eating, Cognitive restraint, and Emotional eating. Internal consistency, test–retest reliability and validity were satisfactory. Using MIMIC model, we tested potential determinants of eating behaviors. Results showed, that BMI associated significantly only with emotional eating (positive relationship). Body image dissatisfaction predicted greater cognitive restraint. Uncontrolled eating and emotional eating were predicted by trait anxiety. Conclusions: The Hungarian version of TFEQ-R21 appears to be a reliable and valid measure, which can be offered further examination regarding its use in current research and clinical practice.
