Doing both cooking and exercising on a regular basis may not work out in the long run, as adults in America found that spending too much time on either of these activities could lead to compromising one of them totally.

The research also showed how 10-minutes of additional time spent in food preparation are linked to reduced chances of exercising. This research is applicable to both men and women, irrespective of whether they are single or married. Parents too shared similar results while doing both activities.

"As the amount of time men and women spend on food preparation increases, the likelihood that those same people will exercise more decreases," Rachel Tumin, lead author of the study and a doctoral student in epidemiology in The Ohio State University's College of Public Health, said.

"The data suggest that one behavior substitutes for the other," she said.

"If we assume, for example, that adults have 45 minutes of free time to allocate to health-promoting behaviors, maybe we need to look at that holistically and determine the optimal way to use that time," could be a possible solution according to study authors.
