OBJECTIVE The present study describes the trajectory of the energy gap (energy imbalance) in the Canadian population from 1976 to 2003, its temporal relationship to adult obesity, and estimates the relative contribution of energy availability and expenditure to the energy gap. It also assesses which foods contributed the most to changes in available energy over the study period. DESIGN Annual estimates of the energy gap were derived by subtracting population-adjusted per capita daily… CONTINUE READING
