Table 8. Estimated Regression Coefficients for Sum of Foods Predicting Square Root Cup Equivalents of Fruits by Sex

For MyPryamid cup equivalents of fruits, estimation of b0 and b1, the model is:

E ([Fruits]1/2) = b0+ b1([NFG1P1 + NFG2P2]1/2)

For MyPyramid cup equivalents of fruits, for each sex, the estimates of the parameters are:

Parameter Men Women
Intercept (b0) 0.197558 0.219778
b1 0.904235 0.868067
