Activity Levels in The Food Processor

Q.  How are the activity levels defined?

 

A.  The activity levels are defined by the DRI's and are summarized below. As activities are selected, the program counts activities that are "not" activities of daily living, toward the next activity level. 

Activity Levels

Sedentary

The sedentary activity level includes activities of daily living, without additional exercise. This level includes sitting quietly, riding in a car, walking from the house to the car or bus, household tasks, and light yard work.

Low Active

The low active activity level includes activities of daily living, plus 30-60 minutes per day of moderate activity, such as walking 3-4 mph.

Active

The active activity level includes activities of daily living, plus at least 60 minutes per day of moderate activity. This activity level is recommended by the DRI committee for maintaining health.

Very Active

The very active activity level includes activities of daily living, plus at least 60 minutes per day of moderate activity, plus an additional 120 minutes of moderate activity or 60 minutes of vigorous activity.
