Lifestyle Patterns, Eating Practices and Obesity among Nurses: A Review.

Shipra Gupta, Samyukta Gaur.

Nursing professionals play an extremely significant role in healthcare delivery. They are involved in multiple occupational activities, which cause stress and can lead to detrimental effects on their personal health. Nurses may often have to alter their dietary and lifestyle behaviour to meet the several urgent demands of their profession. This can put them at risk to various chronic health conditions that can further influence their occupational chores. This paper highlights the lifestyle and eating patterns, weight and health status of nurses; and the impact of these on the professional role of nurses. As very few studies are available on the dietary intakes and activity patterns of nurses, more research is needed on these aspects. An understanding of all these issues is important to plan suitable diet and lifestyle-related interventions for nurses so as to promote optimum health and productivity among them.

Key words: nurses, nursing, lifestyle, eating practices, obesity.
