Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to investigate beverage contribution to total caloric intake of students in introductory nutrition classes. Specifically, this study examined the relationship between beverage contribution to total caloric intake and (1) if the student exercises or not, (2) type of exercise, (3) amount of time exercising, (4) calories burned by exercise and (5) gender.

A convenience sample (n = 98) of 3-day food record assignments from Introductory Nutrition Classes at California State University, Long Beach were utilized for this study. Three-day food record assignments were collected during the 2009-2010 academic year. Assignments were excluded if 3-day food record data or analysis were missing. The results demonstrated a positive relationship between percent calories from beverage and amount of time exercising. Therefore, as the amount of time spent exercising and the average energy expenditure increased, beverage contribution to total caloric intake increased. Results showed that beverage contribution to total caloric intake was greater in males than in females.
