Globally, cardiovascular diseases (CVD) remain a leading cause of death, while obesity (high body mass index) is a significant risk factor for major chronic non-communicable diseases and among the leading global risks for mortality. Diet has a key role to play in reducing disease and obesity risks, but limitations in availability of regionally and culturally specific data remain a barrier to a clearer understanding of dietary risks, and to the development of effective interventions to reduce the risk of obesity and CVD conferred by poor diet. On the other hand, the potential of new approaches to enhance cardiovascular and obesity risk reduction through functional foods and nutrients, optimisation of dietary patterns and nutrigenomics offers promise for improving health and wellbeing outcomes.
This Special Issue seeks to broaden our perspectives on the role of diet in obesity and CVD by gathering exciting new evidence, from the experimental through to clinical and beyond to translational, capturing the best nutritional science from the laboratory through to the ‘real world impact’. We encourage you to submit your article for consideration by 31st January 2020 for this Special Issue of Nutrients.

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 2400 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.
