  1. 1Fully adjusted odds ratios are adjusted for the baseline model variables (sociodemographic variables and body fat percentage), all listed predictors, and significant two-way-interactions at alpha = 5%; significant ORs (p ≤ .05) in bold type.
  2. * Predictor is part of a significant two-way-interaction term, odds ratios were therefore calculated separately for different strata of the predictor (see table 4); odds ratios given in this table are those of the main-effects-only model and therefore unadjusted for the interaction-terms.
