Abstract

The present study examined differences in diet, coping, and exercise levels before and during the lockdown, while also analysing the relationship between diet, coping, and exercise levels during lockdown (cv) with gender, age, location, diet before lockdown, coping before lockdown, and exercise levels before lockdown (pv). Finally, this current study investigates the relationship between before and during lockdown variables, diet, coping, and exercise levels. The present study sought to expand on current research on the changes over the course of the lockdown by investigating these variables together within the same sample. A total of 145 participants completed questionnaires measuring their diet levels, coping levels, and exercise levels, before and during the lockdown. T-test analysis showed no significant difference in exercise levels before and during the lockdown, however diet and coping levels showed significant difference. Multiple regression analysis revealed that diet before lockdown was the strongest predictor of diet during lockdown, coping before lockdown was the strongest predictor for coping during lockdown and exercise before lockdown was the strongest predictor of exercise during lockdown, predictor variables; age, gender, location were not of significance. Correlation analysis showed a significant relationship between diet before lockdown and diet during lockdown, coping before lockdown and coping during lockdown, and exercise before lockdown and exercise during lockdown.
