Eating behavior and dietary patterns have been studied by the most important scientists in the field of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology. Much interest has been placed in understanding how eating behaviors and dietary patterns influence health and nutritional status throughout life cycles. Eating behaviors and dietary patterns have multiple causal factors and have numerous implications for health and nutritional status during various life cycles. The use of innovative methods and tools from psychology and statistics has changed our view of the interface and relationship between behaviors and lifestyles on nutritional status. However, there are still many gaps, especially related to measurement tools, analysis methods, and innovative approaches to evaluate the determinants and impacts of these issues. This Special Issue is aimed at understanding causal factors of eating behaviors and dietary patterns and how they are developed throughout individuals’ life, including actions and behaviors guided by thoughts, beliefs, knowledge, values, culture, and environment and how they may be related to the nutritional status of individuals or population groups. Articles addressing the themes: eating behavior, dietary patterns, and nutritional status are invited for this Special Issue, especially those that combine the use of innovative tools in the evaluation of this interface and have an expanded view of nutrition science and nutritional epidemiology.
