BMI: body mass index; WHR: waist-hip ratio. Β: beta coefficients for body mass index, Β: beta coefficients for waist-hip ratio, and B: beta coefficients for waist circumference. Data include medians for energy adjusted nutrient intakes, β coefficients (95% Confidence Interval) for linear regression, and values for trend. The difference in average BMI and WHR for each quintile of nutrient intake has been adjusted for age, social class, socioeconomic status, category (adolescent and newly married women), and education status.
