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 obesity, psychological determinants of a healthy diet, family & eating, sustainable nutrition and psychodynamic aspects of eating and weight.

Currently, we offer the lectures “Nutritional Psychology” (BP-185) in summer term 2023 and “Eating and weight disorders” (MP-249) as well as "Feminist perspectives on body image and weight" (MP-251) in winter term 2023/2024. Please see “Lectures/Thesis” for more information.

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