The essay aims to analyze the relationship between food, feeding behavior and a healthy lifestyle with other conditions and habits, such as a sedentary lifestyle, poor sports activity, stress and anxiety, while also trying to deepen the possible strategies of food-related coping, as well as the use of "doping" substances and products (intellectual doping) not only for recreational purposes, but also for the reduction of emotionality (eg anxiolytic), or for improving study performances (eg dietary supplements, energizing drinks, etc.). The analysis is a reflection of research carried out on a sample of university students in some European universities, including Rouen, Dunkerque (France), Cluj Napoca (Romania) and Chieti (Italy), regarding their eating habits, their life styles, habits of study, and propensity to physical inactivity.

Abstract

The essay aims to analyze the relationship between food, feeding behavior and a healthy lifestyle with other conditions and habits, such as a sedentary lifestyle, poor sports activity, stress and anxiety, while also trying to deepen the possible strategies of food-related coping, as well as the use of "doping" substances and products (intellectual doping) not only for recreational purposes, but also for the reduction of emotionality (eg anxiolytic), or for improving study performances (eg dietary supplements, energizing drinks, etc.). The analysis is a reflection of research carried out on a sample of university students in some European universities, including Rouen, Dunkerque (France), Cluj Napoca (Romania) and Chieti (Italy), regarding their eating habits, their life styles, habits of study, and propensity to physical inactivity. Such dimensions often correlate with problematic food behaviors, with compulsive consumption of foods and beverages, and the acquisition of uncritical eating patterns.
