Authors: Dr Sarah Seymour-Smith Nottingham Trent University, Professor Brendan Gough Leeds Beckett University Dr Christopher R. Matthews Nottingham Trent University & Dr Zoe Rutherford Leeds Beckett University
Our study contributes new insights about how nutritional advice impacts upon preconceived (mis)understandings of healthy eating practices. During the interviews, men positioned themselves as educators – health promoters might usefully develop nutritional advice in collaboration with men who have successfully changed their diets for optimum effect. To be delivered by Dr Sarah Seymour-Smith Nottingham Trent University.
