Macro- and micronutrient intake among women (Tables S1 and S3) and men (Table S2 and S4) classified as Previously Healthy Adequate Reporters (the Västerbotten Intervention Program, 1992-2005). As supplementary information we present four tables on intake of macro- and micronutrients among Previously Healthy Adequate Reporters women and men.
