This Expert Group was convened to:

(1) examine the evidence on the daily energy imbalance gap;

(2) estimate the level by which calorie intakes would need to fall to reduce the risk of continued excessive weight gain among the population; and

(3) assess the risk this poses to micronutrient status and malnutrition among different population groups.
