According to a new study, most people will either exercise or make healthy meals, but not both over the same period of time. The study which looked at over 112,000 American adults investigated how much time people spent exercising and preparing healthy meals and noted that only 16 percent of men and 12 percent of women had completed physical exercise as well as dieting. On average, when compared to non dieters, men took roughly 19 minutes of exercise and women around 9 minutes. In addition, the study looked at the time both sexes took to prepare meals – men approximately 17 minutes and women on average 44 minutes, more than double that of men. The study concluded that those who spent more time on either area – exercise or food preparation – the less they spent on the other, suggesting that consumers are only prepared to spend a certain amount of time on healthy activities.

As obesity continues to be a problem in the UK it is important to investigate the way people feel about healthy activities and find routes to encourage people to stay fit. Alongside this, it is also worth noting complementary therapies that can help weight loss such as hypnotherapy.
