The Relationship Between Sleep Deprivation And The Energy Balance Pathways Of Diet And Physical Activity

  • Presented on May 30, 2013

Purpose To examine the energy balance pathways of diet and physical activity under conditions of acute sleep deprivation in normal-weight and obese women. Methods In counter-balanced fashion, 22 normal-weight (30.9±9.5 yrs, 22.0±1.6 kg/m2) and 18 obese (29.7±10.7 yrs, 36.4±5.3 kg/m2) women, with a consistent sleep-wake cycle, completed two separate free-living sleep conditions (Condition 1: one ...

Association of Depressive Symptoms, Sedentary Behavior, And Dietary Intake

  • Presented on May 30, 2013

Depression is consistently associated with overweight and obesity. Studies have shown that physical activity can prevent and treat depression. Some evidence also suggests nutritional interventions may reduce depression risk, symptoms and severity. However, less is known about whether depressive symptoms are associated with sedentary behavior and poor dietary intake. Purpose ...

Intensity of Physical Activity Performed During U.S. Army Basic Combat Training

  • Presented on May 30, 2013

Purpose The purpose of this study was to measure and compare physical activity (PA) intensity performed during 10 weeks of U.S. Army Basic Combat Training (BCT) at two training sites (Ft Jackson, SC; Ft Sill, OK). Methods 264 recruits from 11 companies wore an ActiGraph on their waist during waking hours for ...

Development Of Cut-points To Measured Habitual Physical Activity And Sedentary Behavior In A Representative Sample Of Toddlers

  • Presented on May 30, 2013

Background Accelerometers are now the method of choice to objectively assess activity in young children. While numerous cut-points exist for preschoolers, cut points for children aged 1-3 years are limited. Purpose To determine ActiGraph GT1M cut-points for sedentary (SED), light (LPA) and moderate-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) in toddlers. Methods ...

Development and Validation of Sedentary Behavior Record (SBR) Instrument

  • Presented on May 30, 2013

Prior measures of sedentary behavior have not systematically measured sedentary activities in multiple domains and over various routinely performed daily sedentary activities with a user-friendly device. The Sedentary Behavior Record (SBR) was designed to fill the gap in the literature in measuring sedentary behavior. The SBR is an adaptation of ...

Inter-instrument Reliability Of GT3X Accelerometers In A Free-living Condition

  • Presented on May 30, 2013

Accelerometers have the advantage of providing objective measures of both physical activity performed at various intensities and of sedentary time. ActiGraph accelerometers are widely used, however with technological advancements new models are periodically released. The GT3X is the most recent model. Although research has shown previous ActiGraph models to ...
