ABSTRACT
Objectives : To verify the association of physical activity and eating habits with the anthropometric and lipid profiles among adolescents from Curitiba, Paraná. Methods : The variables collected were total cholesterol, LDL-c, HDL-c, triglycerides, BMI, socioeconomic status (SES), physical activity, sedentary behavior and eating frequency. Descriptive statistics and binary logistic regression were realized by SPSS 17.0. Results : Boys were more physically active than girls, and girls had 67% and 53% more chance of having elevated cholesterol and LDL-c, respectively. We observed an association between high SES and elevated triglycerides (p<0.05). Who is classified into the second and third moderate to vigorous physical activity level quartiles is more susceptible of having altered HDL-c comparing to first quartile. Conclusion : Girls had a metabolic profile less favorable than boys, and there is a significantly association between MVPA level and HDL-c.
