The purpose of this study is to investigate the nutritional and exercise practices of women in Jordan and to explore the variables correlated with them. There were not any published studies found in the literature that investigated nutritional and exercise practices of women in Jordan despite the rapid social and environmental modernization over the last decade.
This research is a secondary analysis of data from a cross-sectional study that involved 99 women living in Jordan. The original data on exercise and nutrition were collected using the physical activity and nutrition subscales of the Health Promotion and Lifestyle Profile II (HPLPII) scale. In addition to descriptive statistics and correlations, the relationships between demographic variables and nutrition and exercise behaviors were explored using multiple regressions. The only significant correlation found was between physical activity scores and the age of the subjects, with the older subjects receiving lower physical activity scores (r = -.260, p = .009, n = 99).
