Abstract

The psychological analysis of factors influencing on human food behavior and food choices is presented in the article. It is noted that problem of analysis of main factors of human food behavior is very actual, as far as it can become the basis for effective psychotherapy interventions and psychological support of personality who plans to change his/her food behavior or is already in the process of such changes. The article presents researches of different factors in forming of human food behavior, that show that food likes and unlikes are the core of development, support and change of food patterns.

Food behavior is continuously obtained during all cource of a human life, and that is why changes in such behavior require forming of repeated habits, that must be similarly protracted; such duration is fundamentally more longstanding than any short-term intervention periods.  Dietary recommendations intended to reduce fat consumption often induce avoidance of separate products or even whole food categories, and consequently are mostly perceived as superfluously burdensome.

Different influence factors on human food behavior are studied in the article, from psychophysiologycal to social and cultural. Special accents are made on duration of human food behavior, its necessity for everyday life, and, accordingly, meaningfulness for psychological prosperity of a person. Such factor of influence on food behavior as cultural values is also analysed. It develops research into a space of modern trends of psychological science, where cultural and historical determinants should be taken into account.

Such factors, as perception, attitudes, beliefs and values, are investigated. Thus investigated scope of problems becomes linked not only to achievements of cognitive psychology but also actually transcends into dimension of real everyday life of a person and psychological help to a person, who is internally ready to make changes in food behavior. The conclusion is made about the necessity to account different factors of influence on human food behavior in the process of psychological work of a professional with a client, who decided to change certain aspects of his/her own food behavior, optimizing own psychological health and prosperity.
