One of the main characteristics of western society today in terms of food is the amount of excess: ingestion of food in quantities in excess of actual need which has led to the appearance of a health problem in epidemic proportions. Obesity can lead to many others pathologies such as diabetes mellitus, hypertension, arteriosclerosis and cancer.

But in today's consumer society imposes the idea of an ideal body on individuals and here we find problems of obesity and eating problems.

This course seeks to offer the necessary keys for understanding the phenomena dealt with as well as an appropriate approach to the situation both on a preventative level and as intervention once the problem has appeared.


This programme trains its students to intervene effectively in cases of eating disorders, both in prevention and palliative care.

The aim is to give students an integrated, wide-ranging view of nutrition by focusing on eating habits and the social context in which they are developed, and possible strategies to adopt.

Provision of educational guidelines to foster nutritional habits that are without harmful side-effects.
