The 24-hour recall is an interview method and analyzes one day of intake & activity. The report includes total daily nutrient intake, pre-during-post sport nutrition intakes, and an estimate of energy expenditure based on activities. Pre-exercise nutrient intakes are reported for the 4 hours prior to exercise, and post-exercise nutrient intakes are reported for the 1 hour after exercise. The results from a validation study indicate the output from DATA is in good agreement with both a traditional 24-hour recall and observations made by dietitians.
Nutrient values are obtained from the USDA database as well as restaurant websites and sports nutrition product labels. Nutrient values, particularly those for vitamins and minerals, are as accurate as reported from those sources.
Time to complete: 15-20 minutes
Advise the athlete to think about the time they woke up yesterday until the time they went to bed. During that 24-hour period, you will ask the athlete to recall everything they ate and all exercise sessions. As the interviewer, we advise that you familiarize yourself with the tool, particularly the serving size guides, before administering to an athlete. Familiarization will improve the user experience and results.
