PSYC 3307 - Psychology of Eating

This course will focus on the psychological processes underlying humans’ eating behavior. Issues to be addressed include: physiological factors that impact eating (e.g., hunger, restraint), the importance of taste for food selection and eating, factors that impact food preferences (e.g., environment, experience), disordered eating, and the relations between eating and health weight. The psychological rather than physiological processes of eating will be emphasized.

Prerequisite: PSYC 1101 or PSYC 1101H with a grade of C or higher
