Whether this pattern of change is optimal for cancer prevention or requires adjustment remains to be determined by additional experimentation. Higher fiber intake increases satiety, which in turn may reduce total energy intake and prevent weight gain [ 3 — 7 ].
The editing involves the summing of ingredient gram weights into a single whole-food weight that can be assigned to food groups according to the Food Guide Pyramid 3.
Correction 20 Jan To ensure that fruit and vegetable intake for mothers and fathers contributed equally to this mean score, the scores for each variable were first standardized to a mean of 0 and a standard deviation of 1 using principal components analysis.
