Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Eating behaviour is influenced by a complex interplay of physiological, psychological, socio-economic, and genetic factors. It plays a crucial role in determining food intake, impacting overall health, and contributing to the development of chronic diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and obesity. Various elements, including education level, cultural background, personal experiences, sensory ability, and socio-economic factors like gender, age, and smoking, shape eating behaviour. Genetics also contribute, supported by twin studies, genetic association studies, and genome-wide association studies. A comprehensive understanding of both genetic and non-genetic factors influencing eating behaviour can help in developing personalised strategies for promoting health.

In this Special Issue of Nutrients, we encourage the submission of manuscripts focused on the factors influencing eating behavior and the impact of these factors on health status.

We aim to gather new information in this field and include it in this Special Issue. We invite researchers to contribute original and unpublished research and review articles on this topic.

You may choose our Joint Special Issue in Foods.
