This book is about the way in which people acquire food preferences and eating habits. It covers three different approaches which psychologists have taken to this problem: the study of individuals with eating habits that are abnormal to the extent of clinical concern, for example, bulimia, anorexia nervosa and obesity: the development of food preferences and meal regulation in children: and, finally, laboratory-based experiments on how the nutritional consequences of a food can affect its choice and consumption. The distinguished list of authors present a review of this research and its potential application in the understanding and treatment of eating problems that will be of value to clinical and health psychologists as well as to students and researchers in the psychology of learned behaviour and physiology.
