Special Issue "Mindful Eating"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2019).
Interests: mindful eating and mental health in young adults; eating disorders in athletes; exercise and diet effects on mental health; lifestyle interventions of diet and exercise in peri- and postmenopausal women and older adults; obesity; type 2 diabetes
Mindful eating has recently been recognized for its important role in increasing awareness about eating practices and promoting behavior change in various clinical populations, such as individuals with binge eating disorder (BED), overweight and obese individuals, and patients with chronic diseases (e.g., type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease). However, there is a paucity of scientific evidence on the effects of mindful eating on mental health, especially in young populations with and without disordered eating and older adults with mental-health-related comorbidities.
In this Special Issue, entitled “Mindful Eating”, the journal Nutrients welcomes the submission of original research manuscripts or articles reviewing the existing literature on the topic of mindful eating in healthy and diseased populations. We particularly encourage submissions with a specific focus on the effects of mindful eating on mood disturbances and mental health in young and older adults with and without chronic diseases.
