Description:

Psychology of Nutrition is the first book to take a consistent psychological approach to all aspects of the selection and consumption of foods and drinks. This approach is based on the author's ground-breaking theory of the cognitive integration of influences on indigestion, which brings together research evidence on the sensory, physiological, cultural and interpersonal factors in the desire to eat and drink. This basis of the theory is that ingestive appetite is a learned response to a complex of cues from foodstuffs, the body and the social and physical environment. In a lucid and absorbing style, the author tackles questions concerning what goes on in eaters' and drinkers' minds about the foods and beverages they are consuming, and explores the cultural meaning of the eating occasion in industrialized cultures. Psychology of Nutrition illustrates and integrates the diversity of behavioral nutrition and thereby consolidates a new field of fundamental and practical research in oneunique resource.
