Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to examine if regular physical activity motivates a healthier diet among people who exercise regularly. Within the framework of physical activity the study's selection was based on recommendations for regular physical activity which is at least 150 minutes/week of moderate intensity or a minimum of 75 minutes/week with high intensity. In total eight physically active individuals between ages 20–55 participated in the study. A qualitative method was used and data was collected through interviews, which was analysed with a manifest content analysis. The analysis resulted in one head category: Physical activity and diet go hand in hand with the following five categories: Characteristics of a Healthy Diet; Motivation to exercise regularly; Food choices during regular training; The impact of diet on exercise – performance and results, and; How regular exercise motivates a healthier diet. The results show that participants consider a healthy diet to be regular, balanced and varied. Physical as well as mental well-being were the primary motivations to exercise regularly among the participants. The results show that participants focus and plan their diets in a better way when they are physically active on a regular basis and they think that their diet affects their training. The conclusion of the study is that regular physical activity motivates a healthier diet.
