About this book

Handbook of Behavior, Food and Nutrition Victor R. Preedy Ronald Ross Watson Colin R. Martin, editors Few phenomena—if any—are as universal and fulfilling as eating. And few bonds are as intricate and personal as our relationship with food: our choices and preferences, our phobias and aversions, the sensory and emotional experience of eating. This relationship is reciprocal as well; as the components of food affect eaters’ behavior, so too do these responses impact what they eat, how much, and why. The Handbook of Behavior, Food and Nutrition explores both sides of this story, with over 200 chapters covering topics at the cellular, systemic, individual, and population levels (and ranging from prenatal feeding to nutritional decline in the elderly), geared to professionals across the behavioral, nutrition, food, and health fields. National and international experts offer the latest data and new ideas on perennial issues (e.g., obesity, anorexia), specialized topics (e.g., emotional effects of chocolate, night eating syndrome), and emerging trends in these areas of eating and behavior: • General and normative aspects. • Pathological and abnormal aspects. • Specific conditions and diseases affecting diet. • Interventions to change eating behavior and attitudes in children, adolescents, and adults. • Behavioral assessment methods. • Plus helpful “Key Facts,” “Summary Points,” and “Applications to Other Area” features, and dozens of tables and figures. Theoretically rich and real-world practical, the Handbook of Behavior, Food and Nutrition addresses the interests of a wide audience, including psychologists, nutritionists, dieticians, public health professionals, pharmacologists, food scientists, and physicians. Additionally, pathologists, food marketing professionals, and policymakers will find it an invaluable source of objective information on increasingly salient issues.
