Table 7. Estimated Regression Coefficients for Sum of Foods Predicting Square Root Cup Equivalents of Total Fruits & Vegetables Including/Excluding French Fries by Sex

For MyPryamid cup equivalents of fruits and vegetables, estimation of b0 and b1, the model is:

E ([Fruits and Veg]1/2) = b0+ b1([NFG1P1 + NFG2P2+... + NFG10P 10]1/2)

For MyPyramid cup equivalents of fruits and vegetables, including and excluding French fries, for each sex, the estimates of the parameters are:

Parameter Men Women
Summary Variable including French fries
Intercept (b0) 0.569237 0.475853
b1 0.811703 0.835344
Summary Variable excluding French fries
Intercept (b0) 0.578786 0.482116
b1 0.805061 0.831300
