The present study entitled “Effect of Protein Quantity on Hip-Waist Circumference and Lean Body Mass of Sedentary Women” was conducted to assess pre and post intervention on nutrition knowledge, activity pattern and dietary practice among sedentary women.
Purposive sampling was done to select 100 adult women subjects of age group (40-60 years) from Hauz Khas, South Delhi, North India to conduct the present study. The study was conducted in 3 phases- Pre Intervention Phase, Intervention Phase and Post Intervention Phase. A structured questionnaire was used to collect the data on knowledge and dietary pattern of respondents during Pre and Post Intervention. Dietary data was collected by 24 hour dietary recall method. The study revealed that the mean waist circumference, mean hip circumference and mean lean body mass at 60th day were, 37.79± 3.04, 46 and 64± 4.29 respectively, showing no statistical significant difference in measurements when compared to 0 day. During the study the change regarding mean hip-waist circumference was observed in few subjects, the changes were found to be very few due to time constraint. Further, more changes would have been possible if the research study would have been carried forward for longer duration.
