Special Issue "Metabolic Adaptations to Diet and Physical Activity"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2020.
Interests: muscle metabolism; muscle fatigue and recovery; muscle damage; oxidative stress; high-intensity interval training; neuromuscular performance; eccentric exercise
Physical activity, ranging from low-intensity occupational or leisure-time movement to moderate- or high-intensity exercise, requires energy at different rates. These fluctuations in energy expenditure determine the contribution of lipid and carbohydrate metabolism and induce acute and chronic metabolic responses and adaptations which improve health and performance.
Diet includes not only the amount and quality of nutrients consumed daily by an individual, but also their manipulations aiming to promote weight loss, health, and physical performance.
In this Special Issue of Nutrients entitled “Metabolic Adaptations to Diet and Physical Activity”, we aim to bring together papers that examine acute or chronic metabolic adaptations to exercise and diet, as well as their interaction.
We welcome different types of manuscript submissions, including original research articles, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses.
Potential topics may include, but are not limited, to the associations between macronutrients and micronutrients intake (or manipulation), dietary patterns, and the entire spectrum of physical activity (from light to high-intensity exercise). The outcome variables may be health-related metabolic adaptations, including metabolic and body composition changes, hormonal responses, as well as molecular mechanisms responsible for metabolic adaptations.

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.
