Using a 1-page bar-coded food frequency questionnaire, the food habits of 996 adults who participated in diet screening at the annual meetings of the American Heart Association (1989) and the American College of Cardiology (1990) were analyzed for sex, age and regional differences. Estimated nutrient intakes were also compared with those from the Department of Agriculture's 1985 and 1986 Continuing Survey of Food Intake of Individuals. The average diet reported in this study satisfied National Cholesterol Education Program guidelines for cholesterol intake, but was higher than that recommended for total and saturated fats. In addition, dietary fat intake was influenced by sex, age and geographic region. Reduction in total and saturated fat intake was confined to men greater than 35 years of age; intake of these nutrients was highest among young, Mid-western women. These results suggest the need for diet intervention programs, targeted specifically to young adults with additional consideration given to regional variation. Repeated surveys of cardiac care givers might be used as an early indicator of the nationwide effectiveness of dietary intervention programs.
