The Current State of Nutrition Research in the UK Military

Research Paper Title

Nutrition Research in the Military.


Military research performed in an operational environment involves mission-specific considerations.

The Institute of Naval Medicine was tasked in 2008 by the Surgeon General to investigate the nutritional status of deployed British military personnel, and how this might affect body composition, physical fitness and operational capability.

This paper briefly describes the logistic and technical issues specific to military research that were encountered by the study team, how these issues were overcome and how this research has influenced military practice.
