Abstract

We believe that the twin questions of whether self-report based estimates of energy intake (EI) and physical activity energy expenditure (PAEE) have sufficient validity to merit use in scientific
research or should simply be abandoned are important ones that, for too long have been the elephant in the room. Therefore, we are delighted that Dr Frazier-Wood and Dr Satija and colleagues have come to the table to engage in scholarly dialogue on this topic.
