Background and Objectives: Obesity is a worrying problem in the present age and is the cause of many chronic non-communicable diseases. Several nutritional and non-nutritional factors are involved in the emergence of this health crisis. One of the important nutritional factors is the quality of nutrition. In this study, the relationship of the Alternative Healthy Eating Index (AHEI-2010) in relation to obesity, vitamin D3, and CRP, was  investigated in the elderly. 
 
Methods: This descriptive-analytic (cross-sectional) study, was performed on 190 older adults referred to health centers of Tehran University of Medical Sciences using cluster sampling. Food intake was measured by Food Frequency Questionnaire. The level of vitamin D and hs-CRP were calculated in fasting blood, and variables of weight, height, and waist circumference, were measured .In the final analysis with logistic regression, confounding factors, were adjusted and p<0.05 was considered statistically significant.
 
Results: The mean age of the subjects, was 67.31 and the mean BMI was estimated to be 29. 89. The distribution of the individuals in terms of weight, body mass index, and waist circumference, was not significant based on AHEI-2010. The odds ratio of abdominal obesity based on AHEI-2010, was estimated to be OR=0.85 after adjusting for confounders, which was not statistically significant, but this distribution was not significant for the odds ratio of general obesity (p=1.20).
 
Conclusion: The findings of this study revealed that by increasing the score of AHEI-2010, the odds ratio of abdominal obesity decreases, but there is not significant relationship between the AHEI-2010 and general obesity, vitamin D3, and hs-CRP.
