About the Project

"Appetite research is of importance at key stages of the lifespan for different reasons. In infancy, childhood, and adolescence developing healthy eating behaviours can lead to healthy habits and diets that carry through into adulthood. In middle age, where weight gain may be an issue, food products that increase satiety and satiation can have a positive effect on weight maintenance or adherence to weight loss diets. In older adults, weight loss can occur due to a decrease in appetite and can have implications for healthy independent ageing. The current project will examine one of these keys areas of appetite research and will examine how changes in appetite can have positive implications for dietary intake.
The project will be carried out at the Hugh Sinclair Unit of Human Nutrition, University of Reading, UK which is a vibrant, internationally recognised research group in diet and nutrition with a wide range of facilities that can be utilised in supporting this project. For an informal discussion, please contact Dr Miriam Clegg ()."
