Physical activity as one of the factors that contribute to energy expenditure is related to nutritional status which is described as the energy balance of nutritional intake with the body’s energy needs. This study aims to study the relationship between physical activity and nutritional status of students of the Faculty of Medicine, Tarumanagara University Class of 2019-2020. The design of this research was descriptive analytic with a cross-sectional approach. Physical activity data was collected using the GPAQ (Global Physical Activity Questionnaire) questionnaire and nutritional status data was collected using anthropometric measurements (WHO Asia Pacific Body Mass Index). The results showed that from 136 students, there were 73 (53.7%) students who had low physical activity, 48 (35.3%) students had moderate physical activity, and 15 (11.0%)) students had high physical activity. Based on the nutritional status,there were 65 (47.8%) students with normal nutritional status, 30 (22.1%) students with nutritional status at risk of obesity, 26 (19.1%) students with obese nutritional status I, and 15 (11.0%) students with obese nutritional status II. The results of the analysis test between physical activity and nutritional status using the Chi-Square Test obtained p-value = 0.092 and prevalence risk was 1.325. The conclusion of the research is that there was no statistically significant relationship between physical activity and nutritional status of students at the Faculty of Medicine, Tarumanagara University Class of 2019-2020. Respondents who do low physical activity had a 1.325 times higher risk of having a nutritional status of obesity and obesity risk than respondents who engage in moderate and high physical activity.
