Abstract:
Background and Objective: Obesity is a multifactorial disease that has increased in prevalence worldwide. This study aimed to determine the association of macronutrient intake and physical activity levels with nutritional status in Minangkabau adult women. Materials and Methods: This was a cross-sectional study that was conducted on 116 Minangkabau women between 40 and 54 years old. Food intake assessment was performed using a food frequency questionnaire (FFQ). Nutritional status was calculated based on body mass index. Statistical analysis was performed using one-way ANOVA and chi-square test and the significance level was set at p<0.05. Results: This study revealed that most subjects were overweight (30.2%) or obese (38.8%). The average intake was as follows: Total calories 2012.18 ±737.9 kcal day1, carbohydrate 269.69±104.3 g day1, fat 64.51±27.8 g day1, protein 86.6±37.3 g day1 and fiber 13.04±6.4 g day1. The statistical analysis showed that there was a significant relationship between fat intake and nutritional status (p = 0.03), while there was no significant relationship between the intake of other macronutrient and nutritional status (p>0.05). Conclusion: There was a significant relationship between fat intake and nutritional status in Minangkabau adult women but no such relationship was observed with other macronutrients.
