  Purpose

Objective activity data will be collected using accelerometry for a minimum of seven days on 38 adult, female, women recruited from the metabolic Clinic at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. Following objective measurement of activity, participants will complete self-report and objective activity data, as well as the relationship between sedentary activities and food cravings will be examined. It is hypothesized that minutes of sedentary behavior, especially time spent in television viewing, will be significantly correlated with total and specific food cravings.
