Food cravings are an intense desire to eat highly palatable and energy-dense foods and are among the main influencers of eating behaviour. In this module you will learn best practice steps to manage patients, then undertake a practical exercise to identify a patient who is overweight or living with obesity from your practice in order to reflect on latest evidence.

Upon completion of this module the participant should be able to:

  • Define and classify different types of food cravings in the context of obesity.
  • Describe the mechanism of food intake regulation and how this links to obesity.
  • Discuss the relationship between food cravings and weight management.
  • Understand the range of interventions available to reduce or control food cravings.
  • Describe available self-report tools to assess attitudes towards food and food intake behaviour.
