Special Issue "Eating Behaviors"
A special issue of Behavioral Sciences (ISSN 2076-328X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2015).
Interests: studies relating eating behaviors to health or disease outcomes; or studies characterizing eating behaviors of unique or “at risk” populations.
Eating behavior provides a basis for understanding how diet influences health status and disease risk. However, much of nutritional epidemiology fails to consider eating behavior when categorizing dietary exposures in purely quantitative terms. These categorizations are based on the levels of food and nutrient intake estimated in a population and are often assessed using tools that cannot discern much about eating behaviors. This Special Issue of Behavioral Sciences invites authors to contribute manuscripts on diverse aspects of eating behavior. Most relevant will be those that add to our understanding of eating behavior as either a contributor to or a consequence of health outcomes of interest to practitioners, researchers, educators and clinicians. Studies characterizing eating behaviors of unique or vulnerable populations are also welcome.
