Article
The present obesity "epidemic" has been attributed to a growing trend for snacking. Snacking may contribute to excess energy intake and weight gain through different ways, for example: context/environment of eating, frequency of consumption and quality of food choices. The present article reviews data and hypotheses about the role of snacks in diet...
Chapter
‘Satiation’ and ‘satiety’ are key terms that have come to be widely used to help understand processes involved in appetite control and, in turn, to account for changes in food consumption that may lead to obesity. Taken together, satiation and satiety are major components of the Satiety Cascade. In theory building the terms have different levels of...

Melanocortin-4 receptor (MC4R) mutations are the most common known cause of monogenic obesity and an important contributor to polygenic obesity. MC4R mutations with partial or total loss of function, as well as the variant rs17782313 mapped near MC4R, are positively associated with obesity. MC4R is involved in the leptin-melanocortin signalling sys...
Article
Satiation and satiety are central concepts in the understanding of appetite control and both have to do with the inhibition of eating. Satiation occurs during an eating episode and brings it to an end. Satiety starts after the end of eating and prevents further eating before the return of hunger. Enhancing satiation and satiety derived from foodstu...

High viscosity fibre is known to exert many beneficial effects on appetite and metabolism. It could potentially help in weight management, in dieting or nondieting individuals. The present study investigated the effects of the daily intake of a novel high viscosity polysaccharide (HVP) over 3 months in nondieting obese or overweight men and women....
Article
Satiety is a complex psycho-physiological mechanism that allows the adjustment of energy intake to expenditures. As such, it plays an important role among the numerous interacting mechanisms contributing to body weight control. Booth and Nouwen rightfully stress that satiety claims can be misleading and even dangerous when they are misrepresented o...
Article
Sugar and sweetness are potent psycho-physiological stimuli capable of affecting several aspects of ingestive behaviours. An innate acceptance of sweet solutions appears in the human newborn before the first feeding experience. From the first years of life, the response to sweetness changes as a result of an individual’s experience with foods. In a...
Article
The energy density (ED) of a food corresponds to its energy value per unit weight (or volume). The ED of a meal or of the overall diet could theoretically be defined using the same formula, but the contribution of liquids is a potential source of confusion. A high ED food brings much energy in a small volume (or weight) and creates relatively littl...
