Abstract

Obesity, according to its simplest definition, is excessive accumulation of fat in the body. Obesity is a health problem that is observed commonly in almost all societies and it is starting to become a global epidemic. In this study, physical activity and obesity statuses for individuals between the ages of 18-30 with different body types were tried to be associated via bioelectrical impedance analysis device and metabolic holter measurements. It was determined according to the results of the study that body fat ratio increases and number of steps decreases with increasing age, that there are statistically significant differences between gender and AEC, TEC, muscle weight and total body water and that this ratio is greater in men in comparison with women. Statistically significant differences (P<0.05) were determined between the muscle weight and total body water, BMI, waist/hip ratio, TEC, AEC; between total body water and BMI, waist/hip ratio, TEC and AEC; between the body mass index of individuals and their body fat ratio, waist/hip ratio, TEC and AEC; between body fat ratio and waist/hip ratio and TEC; betwen waist/hip ratio and TEC and BMR; total energy consumption and physical activity duration, AEC, number of steps, PAL, time spent with moderate intensity movement and time spent with very high intensity movement; physical activity levels and AEC, number of steps, PAL, time spent with moderate intensity movement and time spent with high intensity movement; between active energy consumption and number of steps, PAL, time spent with moderate intensity movement, time spent with high intensity movement and time spent with very high intensity movement; number of steps and PAL, time spent with moderate intensity movement, time spent with high intensity movement and time spent with very high intensity movement; PAL values of individuals who participated in the study and the time spent with moderate intensity movement, time spent with high intensity movement and time spent with very high intensity movement.
