A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Health Behavior, Chronic Disease and Health Promotion".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 22 April 2020.
Obesity is a global health concern. We need to better understand the contribution of energy intake and energy expenditure to its etiology. In this Special Issue, the contributions of intake and expenditure through diet and exercise interventions will be examined. This Special Issue seeks research papers (original research, reviews, and meta-analysis) on various aspects of nutritional and exercise interventions to help to prevent disease and to promote public health. Further, in addition to body weight and cardiometabolic health outcomes, other physiological and psychological endpoints are welcomed (e.g., nutrient status, physical function, affect).
The submission of all types of manuscripts from rigorous randomized clinical trials to pragmatic community-based designs is encouraged. Thus, controlled or free-living diet and exercise interventions are acceptable. It is understood submissions will often utilize multidisciplinary and collaborative research. Original research papers as well as systematic reviews and meta-analysis are welcomed.
Dr. John W. Apolzan
