Non-HDL = non-HDL cholesterol. High waist circumference, systolic blood pressure, non-HDL, and C-reactive protein refers to the highest quartile of these variables. All models are adjusted for age, gender, race, SES, smoking, total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, and MVPA. The model for breaks in sedentary behavior is also adjusted for the volume of sedentary behavior. *P ≤ 0.05.
