The Food Thought Suppression Inventory (FTSI) recently was validated with an undergraduate female sample. The measure proved to be a highly reliable and valid one-factor measure of food thought suppression. The current study examined the psychometric properties of the FTSI within 289 men. Results suggest that removing one item resulted in a reliable and valid one-factor measure of food thought suppression for men. Similar to the published results with women, the FTSI was related to pathological eating behaviors (e.g. binge eating, compensatory behaviors), and heavier individuals endorsed higher levels of food thought suppression.
