Energy intake

Figure 7 Energy-adjusted nutrient intake for the i th individual = ai + b. (Adapted from Willett WD, Howe GR and Kushi LH (1997) Adjustment for total energy intake in epidemiologic studies. American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 65:1220S-1228S.)

weakness of energy adjustment lies in the fact that not all nutrient intakes are well correlated with energy intake. Overreporting of fruits and vegetables consumption leading to an overestimate of vitamin C intake, for example, would not be appropriately compensated for using energy adjustment if the person was at the same time underreporting his or her fat consumption.
