For data analysis, BMI values of the figures indicating the body size before confinement, the current body size and the ideal one were classified according to the cut-off points adopted by the Ministry of Health (underweight, eutrophia, overweight, obesity).
The proportion of women showing a decrease in body size was similar among underweight, eutrophia and overweight participants, and significantly lower in obese women (p<0.01).
Picos, 2012 Male Female Total (n = 128) (n = 192) (n=320) Blood pressure Normotensive 81.3% 87.0% 84.7% Normal / high 11.7% 6.3% 8.4% Arterial hypertension 7.0% 6.8% 6.9% BMI Extreme thinness 0.8% 0.5% 0.6% Thinness 18.8% 16.1% 17.2% Eutrophia 60.2% 62.0% 61.2% Overweight 13.3% 17.2% 15.6% Obesity 7.0% 4.2% 5.4% Table 4.
Thus variables as gender (female and male) and nutritional status (underweight, eutrophia, overweight and obesity) were classified.
It was observed underweight in 14.46% (n = 73, 60 women and 13 men), eutrophia in 63.76% (n = 322, 134 women and 188 men), overweight in 18.22% (n = 92, 12 women and 80 men), and obesity in 3.56% (n = 18, 8 females and 10 males) of the participants (Table 1).
