Nutritional Psychology

We are doing research on questions like: Why do we eat what we eat? Which psychological factors determine our food intake? And how can we define a “healthy” eating behavior from a psychological perspective? Please see “Research” for more information.

Our research focus is on 1) obesity, 2) psychological determinants of a healthy diet and 3) sustainable nutrition. 

Currently, we offer the lectures “Nutritional Psychology” (BP 185 / B. Sc.) in summer term 2023 and “Eating and weight disorders” (MP 249 / M. Sc.) in winter term 2023/2024. Please see “Lectures/Thesis” for more information.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have further questions!
