A daily chuckle can burn up to five pounds of fat a year, scientists have found.
A really raucous laugh uses about the same energy as walking more than half a mile, the American researchers claim.
It works many muscles and makes the heart beat faster.
How a belly laugh will help you lose weight
He said 15 minutes of chuckling daily could lead to a weight loss of just over 4.5lb in a year.
Although laughter has long been thought to be good for the heart and the immune system, this is the first study to suggest a benefit in weight loss.
Well I’m simply tickled by the concept of laughter weight loss. Aren’t you? Heh.
There you are at the docs complainin of that sluggish metabolism and the 5 pounds you swore you would lose after New Years when your doctor reaches for the pill pad, quickly scribbles something, tears the sheet from the pad, and hands you a prescription ……. for daily laughter…lol
Did that idea just make you smile?
There’s your first 1/2 lb. burnt off. Easy as pie.
Wait, don’t mention pie.
So, this natural method proves that chuckling is the ho-ho-holistic way of shedding those love handles eh.
Who ever decided to call them love handles anyway.
Heck if all 400 muscles of the body can move just by laughing, who needs a stair master.
We know that research proves that whenever we laugh we release a wave of chemicals through our chubby lil bodies including the endorphin hormone, which makes you “high”. Our immune systems create white “T” cells, you know those “happy” cells, which help to prevent all those yukky infections.
So , hey go find your inner clown. Heck, you can even leave me a joke or two, or if your’re in the neighborhood, come on by and tickle me.
Woops, another pound shed!
Only 4 left…
Now if I could just remember 4 more knock knock jokes.
Dang, that chocolate looks good.
And when all else fails, just quote the Bible:
“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine; but a broken spirit drieth the bones”.
Dry bones..how unappealing huh.
You know you want to.
