      BACKGROUND: Substantial evidence suggests that weight gain in early life is associated with increased adiposity and other metabolic disorders later in life. It is, however, unknown whether physical activity (PA) may modify ...
    • Does the importance of dietary costs for fruit and vegetable intake vary by socioeconomic position? 

      Mackenbach, Joreintje Dingena; Brage, Soren; Forouhi, Nita Gandhi; Griffin, Simon James; Wareham, Nicholas John; Monsivais, Pablo (2015-09-10)
      Evidence suggests that diets meeting recommendations for fruit and vegetable (F&V) intake are more costly. Dietary costs may be a greater constraint on the diet quality of people of lower socioeconomic position (SEP). The ...
    • Estimation of free-living energy expenditure by heart rate and movement sensing: A doubly-labelled water study 

      Brage, Soren; Westgate, Kathryn Louise; Franks, Paul W; Stegle, Oliver; Wright, Antony; Ekelund, Ulf Mikael; Wareham, Nicholas John (PLOS, 2015-09-08)
