Abstract

Aim: The prevalence of obesity, nutrition habits and food consumption frequency in individuals was investigated. Methods: The study was carried out with a total of 51 individuals between the ages of 22-58. Data were collected by questionnaire about personal information, nutrition habits and food consumption frequency. • Results: The prevalence of obesity was found 13.9% in female and 13.3% in male. The waist circumference used to determine central obesity was found ≥94 cm in 80% of male individuals and ≥80 cm in 44.4% of female individuals. Conclusion: Adequate and balanced nutrition is important to maintain a healthy body weight. Low fat or fat free dairy and meat products are suggested. Legumes, un-purified grains, vegetable and fruit should be consumed in sufficient frequency and amounts to increase dietary fibre intake. Exercising is essential in sustaining a healthy and quality life.
