Eating habits are related to why and how people eat, which foods they eat, and with whom they eat, as well as the ways people obtain, store, use, and discard food. Individual, social, cultural, religious, economic, environmental, and political factors all influence people’s eating habits. It seems clear that the quantity and quality of the consumed food can also affect people’s health. In this way, it is easy to believe that health, and disease prevention and/or treatment may also influence an individual’s eating habits. However, can the other way be possible? Do eating habits influence health and disease?
This Special Issue aims to present a broad updated view of different eating habits, dietary patterns, and dietary behaviors throughout the lifespan and in different populations. Contributions from all over the globe are encouraged, in order to provide an image of the different diets countries have in place to deal with health prevention and disease treatment.
Researchers are invited to submit original research articles, using any study design, including case studies, implementation/interventional studies, cohort studies, cross-sectional studies, as well as reviews and meta-analyses.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
