  2. Very sedentary, with little or no strenuous activity, e.g. seated office work, reading
  3. Light activity, occasional walking, e.g. drivers, assembly line workers
  4. Moderate activity, walking or standing work e.g. waiter, housekeeping, salesperson
  5. Heavy activity e.g. farmers, labourers, high-performance athletes
  6. Vigorous activity, e.g. significant amounts of sport or strenuous activity in addition to work described in b, c or d above
