The Progressive Increase of Food Waste in America and Its Environmental Impact

Figure 2

Mathematical model validation.

(A) The experimentally imposed increases of food intake during controlled over-feeding experiments (black bars) along with model predicted values (white bars) calculated using the measured body weight changes. (B) Model predicted relationship between changes of 24 hour energy expenditure and body weight change after 3.6 years of over- and under-feeding (♦) along with the best-fit regression line determined from longitudinal measurements in a cohort of Pima Indians followed for the same average time interval. (mean±SD).
