Special Issue "Diet and Energy Metabolism"
A special issue of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 July 2019).
Colorado State University, Department of Health and Exercise Science, Fort Collins, Colorado, United States
Interests: Optimizing the use of exercise with and without pharmacology to prevent and/or manage type-2 diabetes; Impact of sedentary behavior on metabolism; Hormonal regulation of appetite by activity and inactivity
There is considerable interest among scientists and confusion in the general public regarding optimal dietary approaches to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight and composition. Given the importance of this issue, the journal Nutrients is planning a Special Issue on “Diet and Energy Metabolism” with the aim of providing a source for accurate, up-to-date scientific information on this topic. We invite you and your co-workers to consider submission of your original research findings or a review article on the topic. Manuscripts should focus on the impact of controlled dietary perturbations on energy and macronutrient metabolism as they influence energy balance and body weight regulation, metabolic efficiency, metabolic flexibility, postprandial thermogenesis, macronutrient trafficking, appetite regulation, metabolic flexibility, and exercise performance. Examples of short and long-term dietary perturbations include energy restriction, overfeeding, intermittent fasting, and low-fat and low-carbohydrate diets. Submissions can include exercise studies but should have a dietary component as well. We encourage authors to discuss the impact of their results and to identify gaps in knowledge that can guide future research studies.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nutrients is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
