Abstract


  • Non-core foods are discouraged in favour of core foods in

    dietary guidelines. Australian data indicates that

    consumption of non-core foods and drinks, or ‘extra’

    foods, exceeds 20% of energy, the recommended limit for

    the healthy population. While energy-dense, nutrient poor

    choices are associated with excessive energy intake and

    weight, we found that trial participants who reported

    consuming greater amounts of non-core foods and drinks

    at baseline, lost more weight at 3 months than those

    consuming foods closer to guideline recommended foods.

    However, more detail about the types of non-core foods is

    required to give effective dietary advice.
