Eighteen studies were included(More)
BACKGROUND An individual's occupational activity (OA) may contribute significantly to daily physical activity (PA) and sedentary behavior (SB).

OBJECTIVE Diabetes is associated with low levels of physical activity (PA), but detailed objective information about how PA patterns vary by diabetes definition is lacking. METHODS PA was measured with Actigraph accelerometers in older (60+) adults from the 2003-2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (n= 1,043) and analyzed in 2014.(More)
Given the importance of physical activity (PA) for weight control, identifying strategies to achieve higher PA levels is imperative. We hypothesized that performing a greater variety of self-reported moderate-to-vigorous activities (MVPAs) would relate to higher objectively measured MVPA minutes in two groups who were successfully maintaining their body(More)
