COVID-19 affected the academe and brought drastic changes to learning modalities as face-to-face classes were suspended. Sedentary lifestyle, changes in food preferences, and eating habits, as well as changes in sleep quality emerges. This study was designed to determine the correlation between those three variables and the Body Mass Index (BMI) of the chosen population. A descriptive correlational quantitative research was used to interpret and conclude the data gathered from 88 Senior High School Students who live in Bacoor, Dasmariñas, and Imus, Cavite. Alongside with the gathering of the participants’ BMIs, four standardized questionnaires were also adapted and modified to fit the study. The data from the research instruments are used and are important for analysing and interpreting data. It is seen that the intensity of physical activity done by students is medium intensity, and their average time is 1-2 hours a week. In terms of food preference, the categories of fruits and snacks had the highest total mean score of 4.184 and 4.146 and is “Liked a little” by most students. The eating habits states that students show enjoyment of food. In sleep quality, it was stated that most of the students have poor sleep quality. Lastly, the data comparing the BMI pre-test and post-test, showed that p-value of BMI = 0.306. The data and results that were gathered, analysed, and interpreted, from the factors show that the lifestyle during home-based learning period has no significant effect on the BMI of senior high school students.
