In this study we investigated the relationship between locus of control and attitude to food intake. One hundred and one females (M age = 21.3) were administered the I-E Scale, Eating Attitudes Test, and Goldfarb Fear of Fat Scale. Results indicated that locus of control was unable to predict attitudes towards eating and fear of becoming overweight. The hypothesis that locus of control would be related to attitude towards food intake was not supported. Possible explanations, areas of future research, and implications in the etiology of anorexia nervosa are discussed.
