An Integrative Model of Rational Diet and Physical Activity: Physiological, Gastronomic and Budgetary Aspects
Amnon Levy ()
Economics Working Papers from School of Economics, University of Wollongong, NSW, Australia
This paper constructs a model for analyzing the deviations of consumers’ diet and physical activity from their physiologically optimal ones with distinction between a nutritionally and digestively superior food and a taste and price superior food. The consideration of both diet and physical activity and the inclusion of cause-and-effect relationships of the deviations from their physiological optimal ones with ageing, craving, digestive discomfort, health-dependent budget, and non-food consumption and the consideration of intertemporarily bounded rationality adds realistic features to the analysis of rational eating.
