Special Issue "Dietary Management of Obesity"
A special issue of Healthcare (ISSN 2227-9032).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2018)
Diet is fundamental to the prevention and management of obesity. In this Special Issue, we are seeking unpublished work across the breadth of nutrition research on obesity. This includes dietary interventions for the prevention and management of overweight and obesity across the lifecycle from birth through childhood, adolescence, young, middle and older aged adults. Studies for primary management of obesity using diet and more complex interventions for those with comorbidities and additional therapies will be included. The dietary management of patients after bariatric surgery is a growing area of interest and submissions in this area are welcomed. Research that examines differences in nutritional composition, very low calorie diets, dietary patterns, such as Mediterranean or Nordic diets, and diet quality is covered by this Special Issue. Studies using innovative technology, traditional clinical trials and observational studies will be considered.Prof. Dr. Margaret A. Allman-Farinelli
