Abstract

This brief research aimed to examine how hotel employees' demographics and nutritional knowledge influence their emotional and external eating behaviors. Empirical data was collected from hotel employees (n = 372) from four- and five-star hotels in Mediterranean cities in Turkey. ANOVA was conducted to identify the significant differences in employees' emotional and external eating behaviors based on their demographic characteristics and nutritional knowledge. The study results indicated significant differences in hotel employees' emotional eating by their gender, income, and education level. The study results further revealed that hotel employees' external eating behavior differed based on their gender, marital status, and nutritional knowledge. The study results provide specific theoretical and practical implications in the health care and hospitality industries.
