Nutrition psychology is a specialization of health psychology, an interdisciplinary scientific domain dealing with the implication of feeding behavior on human health and well-being. It involves information from such fields as nutrition, psychology, medicine, agriculture, and marketing. For example, consumer behaviors and decisions on food choice have a significant impact on health outcomes, including risks for obesity, heart disease and some cancers. These behaviors are affected by strong psychological aspects, which impact on people’s perception of nutrition and health. [1][2]
