In this article, in-depth examination of a number of cases in eating behaviours and hypnotisability has been undertaken to emphasise the complexity of some of the issues involved in self-defeating eating. These case studies further highlight the fact that no single measure, used in isolation, can accurately reflect the complex attitudes and capacities which are currently under scrutiny and that measurement of eating pathology is not a straightforward matter. The analysis reveals an emergent emphasis on those factors which indicate possible differences in self-perception in relation to controland regulation of the self.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
