Abstract: This cross-sectional study aims to evaluate the association between the PREDIMED-Plus study lifestyle intervention and (i) adherence to the Mediterranean diet (MedDiet) and (ii) physical activity of cohabiting study participants, and to define the related social characteristics of the household members. Participants were a subsample of 541 cohabitants of the PREDIMED-Plus study. Adherence to the MedDiet, physical activity, anthropometric measurements, family function, and social support were assessed. Multiple linear regressions were applied to the data. Partners of the PREDIMED-Plus participants had higher adherence to the MedDiet compared to their sons/daughters (9.0 vs. 6.9 points). In comparison to partners with low adherence to the MedDiet, partners with high adherence were older, practiced more physical activity, ate more frequently with the PREDIMED-Plus participants, and had better family function (adaptability item). Compared to physically active partners, very active ones were older, more likely to be women, and had lower BMI and higher adherence to the MedDiet. In addition, they ate more frequently with the PREDIMED-Plus participants and had better family function. Using multiple lineal regressions, an increase in the adherence to the MedDiet of the PREDIMED-Plus participant, and better family function, were positively associated with their partner's adherence to the MedDiet. The PREDIMED-Plus intervention showed a positive association with adherence to the MedDiet of the study participants' partners. In addition, this association was influenced by the social characteristics of the household members.
