Table 12. Estimated Regression Coefficients for Sum of Foods Predicting Square Root Teaspoons of Added Sugars from Sugar-Sweetened Beverages by Sex

For MyPyramid teaspoons of added sugars from sugar-sweetened beverages, estimation of b0 and b1, the model is:

E ([Dietary Factor]1/2) = b0+ b1([NFG1P1+ NFG2P2+ NFG3P3]1/2)

Food groups used are: soda, fruitades/sports drinks, and sugar in coffee/tea. For MyPyramid teaspoons of added sugars from sugar-sweetened beverages, for each sex, the estimates of the parameters are:

Parameter Men Women
Intercept b0 0.013561 -0.023338
b1 1.059944 1.054829
