Inversionary and liminoidal consumption: Gluttony on holidays and obesity
MetadataShow full item record
This study aims to explore gluttony as a liminoidal and inversionary form of behavior on all-inclusive holidays and its possible relationship with obesity. The study particularly looks at tourists' attitudes toward food and drinks on all-inclusive holidays, that is, whether they consume food and drinks excessively on holidays; and if they do, whether their excessive eating and drinking habits are continued after their all-inclusive holidays. The findings suggest that people who go on all-inclusive holidays consume more food and drinks (both in terms quantity and variety) and a significant proportion of them, though to a varying extent, continue their excessive consumption habits after their holidays.
