Food behavior is the hallmark of actions and attitudes about food. Nutrition does not mean only “food”, but a correlation between the psychological, biological (neuro-hormonal, digestive, etc.) traits of the person, as an individuality and as part of the socio-professional environment.
Currently, nutrition is influenced by a mix of factors related to cultural or religious habits, time or financial constraints, and even a certain trend created by the media. Nutrition involves increasingly difficult choices, defining our lifestyle, in addition to the physiological features genetically programmed in our biology -hunger and satiety- that should control our eating behavior.
This biology was disturbed by the disorder of neuro-hormonal mechanisms responsible for the prevalence of appetite regarding the hunger sensation and implicitly the occurrence of sensory-gustatory pleasure in frustrating situations.
