Lifestyle as one of the factors indirectly plays an important role in influencing nutritional status. The objective of this research was to find out the influence of lifestyle on nutritional status. The research used a cross-sectional design. The sample was 70 employees of Health Polytechnic Directorate, Health Ministry Medan, and taken by using a total sampling technique. The measured factors were eating patterns (adequate carbohydrate and fat intake, the type of food, and the frequency of eating), physical activity, sleep duration, and nutritional status. The data were obtained based on the measurement of BMI and interviews with using food recall, FFQ and questionnaires, then analyzed by using the chi-square test and logistic regression test in order to identify the most dominant factors which influence the nutritional status. The results of the research showed that there was a sufficient effect of carbohydrate intake (p < 0.001), adequate fat intake (p = 0.022), physical activity (p < 0.001) and sleep duration (p < 0.001) on the nutritional status. The results of the logistic regression test showed that the most dominant factor in influencing the nutritional status was the amount of carbohydrate intake.
