Abstract

An increasing number of studies are investigating food intake volume and frequency in field studies outside the lab. Yet in this emerging research context, inconclusive and seemingly contradictory findings may be the result of complications in defining, measuring, and analyzing intake. This chapter offers a framework for conducting intake studies, and it outlines methods and measures that will increasingly lead to successful studies and accurate conclusions.

Keywords: measurement, field study, data collection, food intake
