OBJECTIVE This study determined the accuracy of the multiple-pass 24-hour recall method for estimating energy intake in young children by comparing it with measurements of total energy expenditure made using the doubly labeled water method. DESIGN Three multiple-pass 24-hour recalls were obtained over a 14-day period to estimate mean energy intake. Total(More)
OBJECTIVE The accuracy of the multiple-pass 24-hour recall method for estimating energy intake in low-income women in the United States was ascertained by comparing the method with measurements of total energy expenditure. The multiple-pass 24-hour recall is designed to provide respondents with multiple cues and opportunities to report their food intake. It(More)
The aim of this study was to determine whether variations in physiological characteristics were predictive of over- or underreporting of energy intake in older men and women. Total energy expenditure was predicted in 81 older men (66 +/- 6 y) and 56 older women (66 +/- 6 y) from a previously developed equation that uses the doubly labeled water method. The(More)
Using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) as a standard method for determining body composition in children, we evaluated the accuracy of skinfold-thickness measurements (with the Slaughter et al equations, which are based on triceps and calf skinfold-thickness measurements), bioelectrical resistance (BR; with the Kushner el al equations and age-specific(More)
PURPOSE To determine associations between intakes of the primary food and beverage sources of added sugars and intakes of key nutrients and food pyramid groups among U.S. children aged 6-17 years. METHODS The 1994-96 and 1998 U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Continuing Survey of Food Intakes by Individuals (CSFII) were used to examine the diets of(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to determine whether the Caltrac accelerometer was a meaningful predictor of physical activity related energy expenditure (AEE) in free-living, pre-adolescent children. SUBJECTS The sample consisted of 31 children (14 girls, 17 boys; 22 Caucasian, 9 Mohawk) with a mean age of 8.3 (+/- 2.0) y. MEASUREMENTS AEE(More)
BACKGROUND There are limited data on the influence of body composition, sex, seasonality, ethnicity, and geographic location on the components of energy expenditure in children. OBJECTIVE The objective was to examine the determinants of total energy expenditure (TEE), resting energy expenditure (REE), and activity-related energy expenditure (AEE) in(More)
College students enrolled in university dining plans are exposed daily to a food environment characterized by foods high in energy, fats, and added sugars, and low in nutrient density. Their decisions about what to eat are currently made in an environment where no nutrition labeling is required. To fill the gap in current literature regarding whether or not(More)
Dietary self-monitoring is considered the core of behavioral weight control programs. As software for personal digital assistants (PDA) has become more available, this study investigated whether the use of a PDA would improve dietary self-monitoring frequency and subsequent weight loss over the use of traditional paper diaries. One-hundred-seventy-six(More)
We assessed the validity of a semiquantitative food-frequency questionnaire to estimate energy intake in young children by comparison with total energy expenditure (TEE). TEE was measured in 45 children (22 males and 23 females; 4.2-6.9 y of age) by the doubly labeled water method and body composition was estimated from bioelectrical resistance (20.2 +/-(More)
