AbstractA descriptive study was conducted to explore diet and exercise patterns of 30 males 20-30 years old who exercised regularly. Data was collected from exercise facilities in Pima County using a three day food and physical activity record, a validated exercise attitude questionnaire, a demographic/exercise and health questionnaire, and a modified food frequency questionnaire. The group's breakdown of calories was 58% from carbohydrate, 25% from fat, 15% from protein, and 3% from alcohol. The mean values of the micronutrients measured for the group were 80% or higher compared to the RDAs. The average fruit and vegetable consumption for the group was low with only three servings per day. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans were followed in this population. Ninety percent of participants exercised an hour or more each day and there was no sign of exercise dependence in this population. It was concluded that this population has adequate diet and exercise patterns.
