Background: Several studies showed that the macronutrient intake of the food basket of imposed veterans with war injuries is lower than the recommended daily adequate (RDA). Consequently, veterans are at risk of nutritional imbalances. The aim of this project was to assess the intake of macronutrients and body composition of veterans with war injuries in Esfahan. Methods: This research was a cross-sectional study. The number of subjects studied was 106 individuals with over 10% percent disability in Isfahan city. Data collection was made using a general details questionnaire and a two-day dietary recall. The data review was conducted with N4 nutritional software and data analysis was done with SPSS10 statistical software. Findings: This project examined the average intake of macronutrients and mean anthropometric indices in veterans with war injuries. Also, a comparison was made between the mean macronutrients and RDA and comparing the mean of anthropometric indices with standard values. The relationship between the amount of intake of macronutrients and anthropometric indices was established. Conclusion: According to the findings of the study, the pattern found in food of veterans is necessary to be corrected. Intake of some amounts of macronutrients was higher than RDA.
