The average age of the individuals participating in the study is 24.7± 8.3 years for men and 24±7.1 years for women (p> 0.05).


Results: According to the results obtained, individuals daily: energy (kcal), energy (kcal / kg), carbohydrate (g), carbohydrate (%), protein (%), polyunsaturated fatty acids (g), mono-saturated fatty acids (%) , saturated fatty acids (g), carotene (mg), vitamin E (mg), vitamin C (mg), vitamin K (µg) and sodium (mg) intakes were found to be statistically significant with MD (p <0.05 ).
