Data from the 2015 Behavioral Risk Factor Prevalence Surveillance System were analyzed to investigate the prevalence of five unhealthy behaviors among US adults with and without stroke. Prevalence of low fruit and vegetable consumption, low physical activity, and smoking were higher in adults with stroke; heavy alcohol consumption was lower; and there was no difference for excess weight. Occupation-based lifestyle interventions are needed to modify these unhealthy behaviors in adults with stroke.
