Populærvitenskapelig sammendrag av avhandlingen:
Physical activity is associated with body composition, but during adolescence there are substantial changes in both.
This thesis looked at the association between physical activity and several indices of body composition in a group of Norwegian adolescents participating in the Tromsø Study: Fit Futures Cohort.
Self-reported physical activity was associated with body composition in the first year, but this association did not remain prospectively, with self-reported physical activity generally not associated with changes in body composition over two years of follow-up.
Similar findings were observed using objective measures of physical activity. Changes in self-reported physical activity between the two surveys predicted changes in fat mass in boys and lean mass in girls and illustrate the positive effects of physical activity and the difficulties of untangling a relationship between two factors that are subject to natural changes during adolescence.
