Efforts to optimize the diet in terms of prevention and treatment of obesity aim at long-term adaptation and reduction of energy intake according to age and physiological requirements while preserving the nutrient density with consideration of individual food preferences. As the nutritional habits of the average Austrian people are unfavorable for obesity prevention there is a clear need for action. Women are “disadvantaged” in weight control compared to men in terms of physiological conditions—and are confronted with specific needs during life course (e.g. pregnancy), whereas the average man or male adolescents present “unhealthier” behaviors and attitudes and are (still) less interested on nutrition or weight control. To achieve better nutrition a target-group specific, gender-sensitive guidance of the individual is needed, starting with pregnant women, but also habitat-oriented interventions for improved nutrition offers, which have to be sustainably assured through the support of a relevant legal and social framework. © 2016, Springer-Verlag Wien.
