There is now an expanding literature on increasing understanding of satiety, from the seminal work on the satiety cascade, appetite hormones, to more recent neuroimaging studies to examine the underlying mechanisms. A pertinent question for nutrition research is whether satiety, or the perception thereof, can be enhanced through behavioural 'interventions', modifications to foods, or the addition of bioactive nutrients, to help individuals control their eating behaviour and dietary intake.
Behavioural work thus far has included increasing attention to the meal as it is consumed, focusing on the expected satiety or memory of foods when planning meals, and slowing eating using various devices. An alternative, dietary approach is to modify the foods themselves; for example, by altering the texture of foods to slow consumption, manipulation of the macronutrient composition (e.g., increase in protein) or adding bioactive nutrients which may have an effect. Moreover, findings so far suggest that some individuals might be more receptive to such interventions than others, based on their 'satiety phenotype', level of intuitive or mindful eating, or responsiveness to satiety.
This Special Issue on ‘Enhancing satiety to reduce overconsumption’ aims to bring together this disparate work from research groups in this field, and to advance that field by highlighting novel ways in which to enhance understanding of existing satiety pathways to reduce overeating.
