This study of ex-post facto correlated survey design was done to examine the relationship between the health lifestyle and health status in adult patients attending an ambulatory nurse-operated clinic located in Bandung, Indonesia. Fifty subjects 30 to 60 years of age, male or female, were selected by systematic random sampling. The data were collected by answering a constructed questionnaire. Clinical test data were collected by measuring weight, percentage of body fat, blood pressure, pulse rate and respiration rate. Pearson’s product moment correlation coefficient r was used to find the relationship between variables and to test the hypotheses. The statistical analysis yielded an r of 0.91. Based upon the results of the study, the following conclusions were reached: 1. The more healthful the lifestyle of an individual is, the higher his health status will be. 2. People with unhealthful lifestyle have a higher risk of hypertension and obesity than people with healthful lifestyle.
