Dieting Beliefs Scale

Following Rotter’s (1966) definition of locus of control, weight locus of control was defined as the expectancy that one can affect or control, at least in part, one’s own weight. The belief that one’s own behaviour or attributes determine one’s weight is described as a belief in internal weight locus of control. The belief that one’s weight is due to factors outside his or her own control, such as luck, genes, fate, or social support, is labelled a belief in external weight locus of control. Four of the items on the DBS were patterned after those on the Health Locus of Control (HLC) Scale (B. S. Wallston et al., 1976).
