UPeU Research Professors published an article in the Q1 scientific magazine indexed to Scopus
The impact of isolation and social distancing in the COVID-19 Pandemic has affected interpersonal relationships and many aspects of daily life such as people’s eating habits and lifestyle.
Because of this, Master Mery Rodriguez Vásquez, director of the Professional School of Human Nutrition; and Dr. Salomón Huancahuire Vega, director of the General Research Directorate of the Universidad Peruana Unión, along with other health professionals from Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Mexico, and Spain, published the article entitled: “Diet and Lifestyle Changes during the COVID-19 Pandemic in Ibero-American countries: Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Peru, and Spain ”.
The article was published in «Frontiers in Nutrition», a scientific journal indexed to Scopus Q1, in which it is mentioned that the research aimed to evaluate changes in eating habits and lifestyles due to confinement by COVID-19 in different Ibero-American countries.
An online survey was the instrument applied to 6,325 people of both sexes and over 18 years old from five Ibero-American countries. The largest group was from Brazil and the smallest group was from Mexico.
The results showed that most of the participants were consistent in their eating habits. Lifestyle changes and feelings of anxiety were also noticed. Nevertheless, there were those who had changes in food consumption patterns and opted for the healthiest options. However, the consumption of snacks and light meals was also strong.
We congratulate the research teachers for their collaborative work and their contribution to scientific research on people’s eating habits and lifestyles.
