"The purpose of this study was to determine the accuracy of self-reported 24-h dietary recalls of overweight and normal-weight adults...A series of one-way analyses of variance (ANOVA) (normal weight vs overweight) and a multivariate ANOVA were performed for total calories, nutrients, and the amount of over- and underreporting. No significant differences between groups were observed."
