Abstract

OBJECTIVES: To assess the accuracy of reporting from both a diet history and food record and identify some of the characteristics of more accurate reporters in a group of healthy adult volunteers for an energy balance study. DESIGN: Prospective measurements in free-living people. SETTING: Wollongong, Australia. SUBJECTS: Fifteen healthy volunteers (seven male, eight female; aged 22-59 y; body mass index (BMI) 19-33 kg/m(2)) from the local community in the city of Wollongong, Australia. INTERVENTIONS: Measurement of energy intake via diet history interview and 7 day food records, total energy expenditure by the doubly labelled water technique over 14 days, physical activity by questionnaire, and body fat by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. RESULTS: Increased misreporting of energy intake was associated with increased energy expenditure (r=0.90, P
