Dietary interventions for cardiometabolic health

Submission status
Submission deadline

With the continued rise in cardiometabolic diseases worldwide comes an intense research effort for identifying the most effective strategies to tackle this public health issue, in part through the modification of lifestyle factors, such as the diet. 

The editors at Nature Metabolism, in collaboration with the editors from Nature Communications,npj Metabolic Health and Disease and Scientific Reports invite submissions of original primary research papers that focus on preclinical and clinical (interventional or observational) studies assessing dietary patterns and interventions for improving cardiometabolic health. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, caloric restriction, time-restricted feeding, fasting-mimicking diets, as well as maternal diets and their impact on the offspring. We also welcome submissions aiming to better understand the interactions between diet and the gut microbiome, diet-gene interactions, and personalized nutrition.
