INTRODUCTION: Overweight is an important public health problem in several countries, since it is a risk factor for many health problems. Many aspects are related to this issue, including the number of meals and portion sizes of food, but the contribution of both to this epidemic is not well established yet. These factors could also alter the lipid profile, which, as well as excess adipose tissue, is a cardiometabolic risk factor, however, the evidences are inconsistent. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the association between food portion and the number of meals with nutritional status and lipid profile of residents of São Paulo. METHODS: The data will be used from the cross-sectional population-based ISA Capital 2008, regarding the sample of residents of São Paulo.

Food reported in each 24-hour recall will br grouped according to their nutritional value and eating habits of the population of São Paulo.
