Correct — correlation does not mean causation. However, any RD worth their soul would tell you based on their personal practice that the more restrictive an individual is with his food choices the more likely he is to overeat or binge. It’s one of those things that we don’t need more studies on. Whether observational or randomized controlled trial.
