A modified dietary survey method by weighing was employed to evaluate nutrient intakes in a poor rural community of Western Zaire.
Energy intakes of children (4-11 years), equivalent to 1.1 times basal metabolic rate (BMR) were inadequate for normal growth and activity.
Intakes of adolescents (11-1 gy) were marginal (1.5 BMR).
Adult women and men had energy intakes corresponding to 2.0 and 1.5 BMR respectively.
These amounts were compatible with the intensive physical activity of women and lighter activity of men on one hand, and with their small body size on the other.
