Energy Expenditure and Dietary Intake in Overweight versus Non-overweight Guadeloupian Adults

Using a basic and accepted method to investigate dietary intake and energy expenditure in Guadeloupian adults, this study shows that energy intake and expenditure are higher in more corpulent persons, who were consequently not identified as less active.


Objective: Obesity is the source of many health problems in Guadeloupe. The aim of this study was to describe the relationships between daily energy intake and expenditure, and weight status.

Methods: Three consecutive daily recalls for activities and food intake were used to assess energy expenditure and energy intake in 20- to 60-year old Guadeloupian men and women.
