The prevalence of adult overnutrition in Indonesia has increased from 26,3% to 35,4% in 2013 - 2018. One of the factors of overnutrition is poor sleep quality. Poor sleep quality increased appetite and decreased energy expenditure, leading to weight gain. Sleep quality also worsened during COVID-19 pandemic. The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between sleep quality and the incidence of overweight/obesity in adults post-COVID-19 pandemic. The design of this study was cross-sectional using an online survey. The questionnaire included current weight and height and sleep quality using the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) questionnaire. Data were collected from June to August 2022 in Indonesia with convenience sampling. A Total 148 subjects filled out the questionnaire completely. The association was analyzed using Chisquare. This study found 58,8% of the subject had poor quality of sleep and 23,6% was overweight/obese. Age, sex, education, occupation, and marital status were associated with sleep quality. The higher proportion of poor sleep quality was found among overweight/overnutrition subjects but no association was found. In conclusion, there was no association between sleep quality and overweight/obesity. Most of the subjects had poor quality of sleep thus, further intervention is needed to improve it.
