Americans frequently partake in one healthy activity at the expense of another

(April 12, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From Ohio – A new report presented at the annual meeting of the Population Association of America finds that American adults often spend time on one healthy activity at the expense of another. Researchers reviewed data on over 110,000 American adults who had reported all of their activities for the previous day. 16% of male participants and 12% of women reported exercising. The average time spent exercising for the entire group was 19 minutes for men and 9 minutes for women. Men spent an average of 17 minutes preparing food, while women spent 14 minutes. Researchers found that a 10-minute increase in time spent preparing food lowered the likelihood of exercising for 10 more minutes—suggesting that time spend with one healthy behavior is done at expense of the other.
