  1. Multiple linear regressions are used for between-group comparison of continuous outcomes
  2. a The total number of participants in the analyses vary between 219 and 264 depending on the outcome
  3. b The total number of participants in the analyses vary between 236 and 269 depending on the outcome
  4. c Adjusted for the respective IFQ baseline-scores
  5. d IFQ: 5-point likert-style scale (1 = never, 2 = rarely, 3 = sometimes, 4 = often, 5 = always)
