note = {The current state of global food systems poses threats to the environment and public health. Addressing these issues requires a transdisciplinary approach to promote sustainable development. This study adopts the One Health approach, integrating human, animal, and environmental dimensions to evaluate the sustainability of diets. It explores the transition towards healthier and more sustainable diets using an extended Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) with integrated One Health indicators. The research also examines the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on dietary habits and lifestyle changes in different regions, aiming to reshape post-pandemic food systems.
In Chapter 3, the study discusses the importance of promoting sustainability in food production and consumption in the context of Western diets in the German federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia. The research reveals that men's reference diet had a greater impact than women's due to consumption of more unhealthy foods. The study also emphasises the importance of making dietary changes to improve the overall health and sustainability of Western diets.
Chapter 4 applies an extended LCA framework to assess the impacts of food consumption in the Rhine-Ruhr Metropolis in Germany. The study suggests that shifting towards vegetarian and flexitarian diets can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve human health, and reduce animal welfare loss.
Chapter 5 highlights the impact of COVID-19 on eating habits and lifestyle. A survey conducted in 2020 in Brazil and Germany showed variations in physical activity levels and diet quality between the two countries. The findings emphasise the importance of conducting real-time assessments to obtain insights for developing strategies to improve conditions in the post-pandemic era and prepare for future pandemics.
This research underscores the importance of multi-dimensional approaches, particularly the One Health approach, in evaluating food production and consumption sustainability. It highlights the significance of making dietary changes to enhance the overall health and sustainability of diets, especially in the face of ongoing challenges such as climate change, future pandemics, and conflicts.},
