Table 11. Estimated Regression Coefficients for Sum of Foods Predicting Cube Root Teaspoons of Added Sugars by Sex

For MyPyramid teaspoons of added sugars including cereals, estimation of b0 and b1, the model is:

E ([Dietary Factor]1/3) = b0+ b1([NFG1P1+ NFG2P2+ ...+ NFG13P 13]1/3)

For MyPyramid teaspoons of added sugars, for each sex, the estimates of the parameters are:

Parameter Men Women
Intercept b0 0.909718 0.868961
b1 0.763567 0.749127
