Abstract

This article describes advancements in methodologies for assessing dietary intake and physical activity among adolescents. Advancements in methodologies are described with a focus on their utility for physicians, focusing first on diet and then on physical activity. Recommended strategies for monitoring adolescent diet and physical activity behaviors have been provided, with consideration of the potential needs, resources, and abilities to conduct assessments in the health care setting. With this information, physicians can serve an important function in the assessment of diet and physical activity, and subsequent healthy weight management, obesity prevention, and chronic disease prevention efforts.
