Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2019).
When people think of energy intake and health, there is a tendency to think of meeting micronutrient and vitamin requirements, and avoiding chronic disease. An important component of energy intake and health is energy balance; that is maintaining energy blalance to avoid weight gain. Overconsumption is an important compnent of human health. There are a range of factors that affect the frequency and amount of food intake. Appetite regulation plays an important role. Hedonic and homeostatic processes influence food preferences and energy intake. Part of the aim of this Special Issue is to provide up to date inrormation about the processes involved in appetite regulation and eneregy intake, and in turn, how this affects human health.
