Abstract: The specific aims of this research were to investigate if a computer generated nutrient analysis with personalized recommendations affected change in diet of post colonoscopy patients and to determine if people with colonic adenomas adhered to dietary recommendations and changed their diet more than people without colonic adenomas. Original dietary data collected from 120 subjects participating in a case control study were used as the baseline data. Follow-up dietary data, for the same subjects, were collected approximately three years later, and daily nutrient intakes were calculated using a quantitative food frequency. The specific dietary components of interest were fat, fiber, cholesterol, p-carotene and vitamins A ,C and E. Nonparametric procedures were used to compare the subjects' initial intakes with their follow-up nutrient intakes.
