  1. Spit Q1-3 were asked at baseline, Spit Q4-8 were added at follow-ups. The presence, frequency, and distress as a result of CHSP was assessed at baseline using three items (CHSP presence, CHSP frequency, CHSP distress) of the EDE-Q:BSV, compared to using all 8-items of the EDE-Q:BSV to assess CHSP at follow-up time-points. Case 1 was lost to year 2 follow-up and did not provide response for baseline dietary guideline 3, nor, a response for year 1 dietary guideline 1. Case 3 indicated to engaging in CHSP at baseline (Spit Q1) but did not specify an amount at baseline (Spit Q3)
