Special Issue "Nutrition, Exercise and Human Health"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2020).
A healthy lifestyle is known to be associated with a lower risk of chronic conditions, even if adopted later in life. As such, lifestyle change is frequently recommended for therapy as well as prevention of disease. Although the term “lifestyle” encompasses a range of behaviours, nutrition and physical activity (with exercise as a specific sub-type) are often the focus of prescription for change. In a sporting context, there is also much evidence of the influence of nutrition on health and performance. Though nutrition and exercise have separate impacts, the effects of the interplay of nutrients together and in combination with exercise are important considerations for optimal health, metabolism, and exercise performance at every age.
This Special Issue invites submissions of manuscripts, either describing original research or reviews with a focus on the interaction of nutrition and exercise in optimising human health, including nutrition and exercise as therapy or in a sporting context. Submissions relating to nutrition and/or exercise metabolism in humans are welcome; however, submissions on in vitro work and animal models are not a focus of this Special Issue.
