OBJECTIVE: The objective of this pilot study was to validate the Dietary Risk Assessment (DRA) food frequency questionnaire against the Keys score obtained from 2 2-day dietary recalls in a sample of subjects. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study design. SETTING: Urban university-based family practice. PARTICIPANTS: The 105 subjects included outpatients, medical students, and staff. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Correlation between the DRA and Keys score. ANALYSIS: Pearson correlation analysis. RESULTS: We found that the correlation between the DRA and Keys score derived from the dietary recalls was .62 (P < .001). CONCLUSIONS AND IMPLICATIONS: The simplicity of the DRA and its correlation with dietary recall may make this a useful dietary analysis and nutrition education tool for both patients and physicians.
