Summary

Information about Americans' food choices and opinions helps researchers and law makers to develop policies and programs to promote health. For this reason, it is important to be able to collect good quality information about how people think about food. This project will compare different ways of collecting information about food from adults.

Description

Objectives:

-To compare different ways of collecting information about food choices and opinions from adults.

Eligibility:

- Individuals between the ages of 20 and 70, recruited from a database of volunteers who wish to participate in research studies.

- Volunteers must have high-speed Internet access.

- Individuals who have previously been involved in a research study will be excluded.

Design:

-Participants will come to a research study center for three consecutive meals (approximately 45 minutes per meal). On the following day, participants will return to the study center for an interview about their food choices and opinions (approximately 45 minutes).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A diet that contains limited amounts of CARBOHYDRATES. This is in distinction to a regular DIET.

Regular course of eating and drinking adopted by a person or animal. This does not include DIET THERAPY, a specific diet prescribed in the treatment of a disease.

A diet that contains limited amounts of fat with less than 30% of calories from all fats and less than 10% from saturated fat. Such a diet is used in control of HYPERLIPIDEMIAS. (From Bondy et al, Metabolic Control and Disease, 8th ed, pp468-70; Dorland, 27th ed)

A diet which is devoid of GLUTENS from WHEAT; BARLEY; RYE; and other wheat-related varieties. The diet is designed to reduce exposure to those proteins in gluten that trigger INFLAMMATION of the small intestinal mucosa in patients with CELIAC DISEASE.

A course of food intake that is high in FATS and low in CARBOHYDRATES. This diet provides sufficient PROTEINS for growth but insufficient amount of carbohydrates for the energy needs of the body. A ketogenic diet generates 80-90% of caloric requirements from fats and the remainder from proteins.
