Does diet quality predict Body Mass Index (BMI) and weight gain in women of reproductive age?


The proposed project seeks to evaluate dietary changes that occur longitudinally in women as a predictor of BMI and weight gain. The project will use self?reported dietary data from ALSWH’s young cohort (1973?78), over two mailed surveys in 2003 and 2009. Women will be classifed according to BMI (underweight, healthy, overweight, and obese) at each time point and their diets compared to observe the changes that occur overtime.
