Introduction: sedentary lifestyle and maintaining unhealthy eating patterns influence long-term anthropometry. Objective: Associate unhealthy eating patterns and sedentary lifestyle in the development of overweight (OW), obesity (OB) and increased body mass index (BMI), in adolescents and young people from the Young Lives study in Peru between 2009 and 2016. Material and methods: Observational, analytical, retrospective cohort research, conducted in 598 adolescents and 1860 children, bivariate and multivariate models, were performed to study the exposure factors and the development of OW, OB and variation in the body mass index (BMI). Discussion: Regular physical activity protects against OW and OB even in populations that are sedentary and have unhealthy eating patterns. Results: The frequent consumption of unhealthy meals is a risk factor (RF) for SP, while that of unhealthy drinks was FR for SP and OB, the consumption of breakfast is a protective factor (PF) for OW and OB, dinner was FP for OW, performing physical activity is FP for OW and OB. Conclusions: Maintaining unhealthy eating patterns increases the risk of excess weight, physical activity of at least 30 minutes a day protects against OW and OB.
