I think they are more commonly asked. My son's therapist is definately CBT oriented, which is great since he is working on anxiety issues, and he talks all the time about eating right, enough sleep, exercise, etc. It is much more solution oriented. Anything that might influence your mood should be understood and worked with.
Of course this is a small part of CBT and I'm sure these things are discussed in all types of therapy. But I doubt it would come up in psychodynamic therapy unless the client brought it up in some way.
