Abstract

Increased consumption of whole fruits and physical activity are inversely correlated with energy intake and weight gain. This study aimed to analyze the daily consumption of whole fruits before meals and walking 10 minutes after meals on dietary intake in overweight adults. Twenty-two overweight adults in Surakarta city were randomly divided into two groups: the T1 group ate a combination of five different fruits/day before meals and walking 10 min after meals. The other group only ate a combination of five different fruits/day before meals for 30 days. The average of energy and fat intake in T1 and T2 groups after intervention decreased significantly than that of before intervention (p=0.016 and p=0.019; p=0.002 and p=0.021). In addition, both groups had a higher average of fiber intake after the intervention compared before intervention (p<0.001). In conclusion, consuming whole fruits before meals decreases energy and fat intake and increases fiber intake in overweight adults but walking 10 min after meals does not affect their daily food intake.
