We all agree that loosing weight is very hard. If only it could happen with just a snap of a finger but it takes lots of effort and disciplines.
But did you know that according to new reports, having a cry can also aid weight loss, and science is backing it.
Leading stress expert Dr Pete Sulack, from Tennessee, said that an emotionally charged crying session can help you drop those few extra kilos.
According to him, stress tears contain the hormones prolactin, adrenocorticotropic hormone and leucine enkephalin, ‘all of which are produced by the human body when it is under a lot of stress.
Cortisol, the hormone responsible for regulating stress levels, has also been linked to retaining body fat through one of the stress hormones.
‘Getting rid of adrenocorticotropic hormone actually reduces the body’s cortisol levels,’ Dr Sulack said.
So a good crying session will not only make you feel calmer and happier, but help get you lose weight as well .
Oh what are you waiting for grab a tissue now and watch drama movie.
Accoring also to the study of St. Paul-Ramsey Medical centre and led by biochemist Dr William H. Frey, found that crying, much like other exocrine processes such as sweating and urinating, helps rid the body of potentially harmful toxins and stress-induced hormones, according to a report by the New York Times.
Dr Frey’s study also found only emotionally induced tears have stress hormones compared to tears from eye irritation or cutting an onion – so you can’t cheat your way out of it.
He added that the best time to cry was between 7 and 10pm ‘when people are mostly likely to be with their significant others and to watch TV or a movie.
This sounds very interesting, I wonder if it can really help us reduce excess kilos in our bodies.
