• #### Describing objectively measured physical activity levels, patterns, and correlates in a cross sectional sample of infants and toddlers from South Africa ﻿

(2017-12-22)
Abstract Background Physical activity is considered to have health benefits across the lifespan but levels, patterns, and correlates have not been well described in infants ...
• #### The descriptive epidemiology of accelerometer-measured physical activity in older adults ﻿

(BioMed Central, 2016-01-07)
Background: Objectively measured physical activity between older individuals and between populations has been poorly described. We aimed to describe and compare the variation in accelerometry data in older UK (EPIC-Norfolk) ...
• #### The Descriptive Epidemiology of the Diurnal Profile of Bouts and Breaks in Sedentary Time in English Older Adults ﻿

(OUP, 2017-08-08)
Background: High sedentary time is associated with adverse metabolic health outcomes and mortality in older adults. It has been suggested that breaking up sedentary time may be beneficial for metabolic health; however, ...
• #### Dietary cost associated with adherence to the Mediterranean diet, and its variation by socio-economic factors in the UK Fenland study. ﻿

Abstract High cost of healthy foods could be a barrier to healthy eating. We aimed to examine the association between dietary cost and adherence to the Mediterranean diet in a non-Mediterranean country. We evaluated ...
• #### Does neighborhood fast-food outlet exposure amplify inequalities in diet and obesity? A cross-sectional study ﻿

(American Society for Nutrition, 2016-05-11)
Background: Greater exposures to fast-food outlets and lower levels of education are independently associated with less healthy diets and obesity. Little is known about the interplay between these environmental and individual ...
• #### Does objectively measured physical activity modify the association between early weight gain and fat mass in young adulthood? ﻿

(2017-11-25)
Abstract Background Substantial evidence suggests that weight gain in early life is associated with increased adiposity and other metabolic disorders later in life. It is, ...
• #### Does objectively measured physical activity modify the association between early weight gain and fat mass in young adulthood? ﻿

(BioMed Central, 2017-11-25)
BACKGROUND: Substantial evidence suggests that weight gain in early life is associated with increased adiposity and other metabolic disorders later in life. It is, however, unknown whether physical activity (PA) may modify ...
• #### Does the importance of dietary costs for fruit and vegetable intake vary by socioeconomic position? ﻿

(2015-09-10)
• #### Estimation of free-living energy expenditure by heart rate and movement sensing: A doubly-labelled water study ﻿

(PLOS, 2015-09-08)
Background: Accurate assessment of energy expenditure (EE) is important for the study of energy balance and metabolic disorders. Combined heart rate (HR) and acceleration (ACC) sensing may increase precision of physical ...
• #### Estimation of Physical Activity Energy Expenditure during Free-Living from Wrist Accelerometry in UK Adults. ﻿

(Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2016-01)
• #### Frequency and duration of physical activity bouts in school-aged children: A comparison within and between days ﻿

(Elsevier, 2016-12-01)
Understanding how physical activity (PA) patterns vary within and between days may guide PA promotion in young people. We aimed to 1) describe and compare the frequency (bouts/day) and duration (min/bout) of bouts of ...
• #### Genome-wide physical activity interactions in adiposity - A meta-analysis of 200,452 adults. ﻿

(2017-04-27)
• #### Home and Work Physical Activity Environments: Associations with Cardiorespiratory Fitness and Physical Activity Level in French Women ﻿

(MDPI, 2016-08-15)
The influence of the physical activity environment in the home and at work on cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) and objectively-measured physical activity has not been extensively studied. We recruited 147 women with a (mean ...
• #### The impact of health behaviours on incident cardiovascular disease in Europeans and South Asians – a prospective analysis in the UK SABRE study ﻿

(PLOS, 2015-03-02)
Background: There is consistent evidence on the impact of health behaviours on risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in European populations. As South Asians in the UK have an excess risk of CVD and coronary heart disease ...
• #### Impact of physical activity on the risk of cardiovascular disease in middle-aged and older adults: EPIC Norfolk prospective population study. ﻿

(SAGE, 2018-01)
Abstract Background: There is broad consensus that regular physical activity yields major health benefits. However, current guidelines on physical activity are mainly aimed at middle-aged adults. It is unclear whether ...
• #### Impact of sit-stand desks at work on energy expenditure and sedentary time: protocol for a feasibility study ﻿

(BioMed Central, 2016-07-18)
${\bf Background:}$ Prolonged sitting, an independent risk factor for disease development and premature mortality, is increasing in prevalence in high- and middle-income countries, with no signs of abating. Adults in such ...
• #### Impact of sit-stand desks at work on energy expenditure and sedentary time: protocol for a feasibility study. ﻿

(BioMed Central, 2016-07-18)
BACKGROUND: Prolonged sitting, an independent risk factor for disease development and premature mortality, is increasing in prevalence in high- and middle-income countries, with no signs of abating. Adults in such countries ...
• #### Independent and joint associations of grip strength and adiposity with all-cause and cardiovascular disease mortality in 403,199 adults: the UK Biobank study. ﻿

(American Society for Clinical Nutrition, Inc., 2017-09)
• #### Intakes and sources of dietary sugars and their association with metabolic and inflammatory markers. ﻿

(Elsevier, 2017-06-17)
Background & aims Associations of dietary sugars with metabolic and inflammatory markers may vary according to the source of the sugars. The aim of this study was to examine the association of dietary sugars from different ...
• #### Large Scale Population Assessment of Physical Activity Using Wrist Worn Accelerometers: The UK Biobank Study ﻿

(Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2017-02-01)
BACKGROUND: Physical activity has not been objectively measured in prospective cohorts with sufficiently large numbers to reliably detect associations with multiple health outcomes. Technological advances now make this ...
