Wanna lose weight?..Laugh..heh


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. food-cake.gif

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. laugh-lol.gif

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”.
Proverbs 17:22

Dry bones..how unappealing huh.
C’mon, laugh.
You know you want to.

    You make me laugh, Angel, so maybe, with my intestinal condition and consequent weight loss problems, I need to stop reading….

    nah. High fat comfort foods, to negate the chuckles…

  2. Always On Watch says:

    One little problem…I like to eat chocolate when I’m chuckling. Just kidding!

    I’m not sure that laughing makes us lose weight–my husband’s body seems to prove otherwise. But I do know that laughing keeps my brain on an even keel. Well, sort of. ;)

    If this were true I wouldn’t weigh nearly as much as I do!

    I laugh at this! Hah!

    Jeepers! An ounce just fled! Whoo-Hoo!

    I guess I’ll have to get the hubby to start tickling me.. ;)

  5. Defiant Infidel says:

    That’s the spirit, Brooke!

    Angel, you are so right. I think the benefits of laughing are much more brain targeted, but that would make humor only more imperative, right?

    I’m really hopeful that it doesn’t cause weight loss. I laugh a LOT (although you can’t tell by some of my recent posts) and I am not overweight… too much more and I might get too skinny! Between scurrying up trees during hunting season, shoveling snow, hauling four foot logs to our outside wood furnace and 12 to 15 hour, out-of-control, back country snowmobiling adventures I don’t carry a whole lot of excess poundage. Perhaps the laughter is useful for just keeping me “toned”? That’s the proper Hollywood term, isn’t it? HA!

    (Oh, you should have seen the muscle flex that came with that chuckle…)

    LOL! You are a trip, Angel! :) So how come there are so many fat, jolly people like Santa? ;)

    Get on the treadmill and walk walk walk

    I’m laughing all the way to the refrigerator.

    The Sane War Manifesto…

    Hillary Clinton has finally presented her plan for the war on terror. After her trip to Iraq, complete with presidential-looking photo op with Iraqi leaders, she has decided (1) Afghanistan needs more troops; (2) Iraq needs less (or no) troops;…

    Criminy, I should be about the size of a Kate Moss type. Hmmm…. guess it doesn’t help if you aren’t a drugged out anorexic though. :)

    What Hath New Jersey Wrought?…

    And now comes this act, which I consider scarcely short of treason, and wonder where the voices of reason in New Jersey are. Where are the protestors on the steps of the Capital building? Where the outraged calls for impeachment? Are there no Patriots …

  12. Angel says:

    lol :) thanks y’all for “humoring me”..ha

    Great post hun and I read that – supposedly laughing makes you lose weight. You wrote, “Our immune systems create white “T” cells, you know those “happy” cells, which help to prevent all those yukky infections.” That is true and the Bible supports that when it was written, “laughter is good like a medicine” in Proverbs. But lose weight–hun if that were true there never would have been such a thing as over-weight let alone obesity! LOL! Don’t yah wish tho?!!! :)

    I used to laugh a lot…didn’t lose any weight. Oh well. Got gastric bypass surgery in March of 2006 and have lost over 150 pounds so far (18 inches off the waist). Diets didn’t work. Surgery is working for me.

    Ahhh……I feel lighter already.

    I only trust weight loss methods good enough to be hawked on late night infomercials by out of work actors.

    Hello, This is Mary

    I am 36 years old with 2 toddlers. My youngest just started day care last week- which still feels a little strange. I haven’t had this much time to myself in years. First thing I want to do is lose the extra pounds I put on during the last pregnancy. One of the girls next door has suggested I join her walking group two days a week. After my first pregnancy I lost around 35 pounds using the Herbalife products, but when I called the man that sold them to me three years ago he told me this week he doesn’t sell them anymore. He told me to look on the internet. It’s disappointing because he was really nice and he called me regularly to make sure I was using their products correctly. It was nice to have someone checking in with me every week to see how I was and it kept me motivated.

    I searched on the internet for someone that sells Herbalife in New Jersey. I found many websites but I don’t want
    just to buy the products, I want to find someone trustworthy that sells the products so I can also meet them and get started again.

    Could anybody here recommend someone in New Brunswick?.

    Thanks, Mary

    Hi Mary,

    >From one mom to another I think I have a solution for you!! I want to lose 40 pounds, and I’ve lost 28 so far!!! I am feeling fantastic and have more energy than I did when I was in college. I went through three different Herbalife distributors until I found the person I felt really actually cared about me and helped me to start getting results. The bottom line was that I wanted to find somebody that could offer me good prices, but that could also check in with me to make sure I was doing ok.

    I used to drive two hours to meet with my first distributor in West Haven, Connecticut. I even brought the girls with me a few times because I couldn’t find a babysitter. Today my Herbalife coach does everything over the phone and it is much easier with my busy schedule. You can order Herbalife online on his website, you get the shakes a few days after with FedEx and then you can setup a telephone meeting once a week to make sure you are doing the program right.

    His name is Danny Castello and his website is http://www.goshape.com. The number is (310) 928- 3835. He and his girlfriend Michaela actually do most of the coaching together as a team, but she has an Herbalife site as well: http://www.puresteps.com. He does most of the motivation on the call and gives you important facts regarding nutrition. He can be a bit tough but he really wants you to get results. She is a bit softer- so they make a good combination. Actually I also recommend joining his newsletter first so you can see the articles on nutrition. They also have videos so you can see who they are before actually calling them. Its nice because they actually use the products too. You can see on their websites.

    Hope this helps!
