Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Move beyond the use of self-report for dietary intake quantification

There is a need to move beyond the use of self-report for dietary intake quantification towards funding the development of new technology and broader use of objective measures. There is no question that the effects of diet on health, quality of life, and longevity are of great interest to many and plausibly of great importance. Because of that, tremendous research resources have been provided to study this topic. Given the great difficulty in measuring dietary intake in humans in free living situations by any means other than self-report, investigators generally rely on self-report measurements for such studies.
