Perhaps the results could be explained by the food-based traditions surrounding many religious events, the fact that these activities tend to be relatively sedentary (catching the Holy Spirit does not count as cardio) or that some people are choosing them over exercise (after all, there’s only so much time in the day). The study didn’t get to the bottom of that.
