  2. aNutrient intake change: baseline nutrient per 1000 kcal – nutrient at 6 months per 1000 kcal
  3. bBody fat change (body fat loss): baseline body fat mass – body fat mas at 6 months
  4. cThe model was adjusted for age, household income, baseline body fat and baseline investigated nutrient per 1000 kcal intake
