Background: The aim of this study was to Survey of relationship physical activity level and sedentary behaviors with diet patterns among 12-14 year-old adolescent boys in Sabzevar. Materials and methods: This cross-sectional study was performed on 650 boy students aged 12-14 years in Sabzevar that were selected via classified random Sampling. Physical activity levels were assessed by the Physical Activity Questionnaire for Older Children (PAQ-C). Energy intake and Macronutrient were assessed by means of a semi-quantitative food frequency questionnaire (FFQ). Sedentary behaviors of subjects assessed by means of a made-researcher questionnaire by researcher. Data were analyzed by SPSS version 13 software using Spearman and Pearson's correlation coefficient and ANOVA test. Result: There was no significant correlation between physical activity level and energy intake and macronutrient. In total subjects there was no significant difference in the reported energy intake and macronutrient between physical activity levels. But, in 12 year-old subjects, energy intake, Total fat, Protein and Carbohydrates in low physical activity level subjects were significantly higher than moderate physical activity level subjects. There was significant positive correlation between physical activity level and Number of breakfast Consumption per week. There was no statistically significant correlation between the reported Energy intake and Macronutrient with sedentary behaviors. Conclusion: There was no significant difference in the reported Energy intake and Macronutrient between physical activity levels among 12-14 year-old students. But, energy intake and macronutrient in low physical activity level subjects were somewhat higher than active subjects. Therefore, the results suggest that nutrition education regarding balanced diet and optimum physical activity is required for children's health and growth.
