Mean intakes of  vegetables, fruits and dairy products were less than 50% of the recommended portions.  F % was 32.6%.  Saturated fat was less than 10% and cholesterol intake less than maximum suggested.  Appropriate values of HFI were obtained in 20.4% of individuals.  No associations were found among BMI and energy intake and HFI.  It is concluded that a high proportion of women presents less-than-adequate diets
