Factors influencing reported food intake

thesis
posted on 1995-01-01, 00:00 authored by Catherine Elaine. Wheeler
A study was conducted to investigate the possible influence of body size and composition, errors in portion size estimation, level of satisfaction with body size and degree of dietary restraint on the level of reported food intake obtained using both a food frequency questionnaire and weighed food record. The findings suggest that in dietary studies based on weighed food records, 'weight consciousness', as determined using a measure of dietary restraint, could be more important than influence of body size in determining the level of reported intake.
