TRONCOSO-PANTOJA, Claudia et al. Practical guide for applying the dietary method for integrated nutritional diagnosis. Rev. chil. nutr. [online]. 2020, vol.47, n.3, pp.493-502. ISSN 0717-7518.

The dietary method, as part of a nutritional evaluation, aims to gather information that allows the interpretation of food consumption in a person, independent of age or health condition. The method considers chronological aspects, sex, physical activity or religion, among others. The objective of this review is to provide practical guidance to apply the dietary method of integrated nutritional diagnosis through the administration and interpretation of food surveys, such as a daily diet survey or a 24-hour dietary recall. The article also provides practical information that allows its application and research, information that is necessary for nutritionists, other health staff, and future experts to enhance the comprehension of the importance of correct application. In conclusion, an appropriate use of dietary information tools allows for a deepening of the diet and provides guidelines for the study of certain eating behaviors.
