The Psychology of Eating is the essential multi-disciplinary introduction to the psychology of eating, looking at the biological, genetic, developmental, and social determinants of how humans find and assimilate food.


Thoroughly revised and updated, this new third edition brings multi-faceted expertise to the topic of normal and dysfunctional food intake, juxtaposing ‘normal’ eating, eating in environments of food scarcity, and the phenomenon of ‘abnormal’ eating prevalent in many modern-day developed societies. The book includes some discussion of eating disorders but takes a much broader approach to the psychology of eating. Key updates to this edition include:

  • A new discussion of food allergies
  • A fully updated chapter on eating disorders, which includes discussion of binge-eating
  • Greater focus on junk food addition and updated information on epigenetics and the microbiome


Featuring student-friendly materials such as learning objectives, talking points, glossaries and self-assessment questions, this book is essential reading for students of psychology, eating behavior, or health sciences. It will also be useful reading for professionals in health psychology and anyone supporting those with eating disorders and obesity.
