Couch Potato’s Dream: Burn Calories While Watching Movies

smile therapyDearest Couch Potato, I’ve got some splendid news for you!  University of Mississippi researchers found that ‘movie munchers’ ingested 28% more buttered popcorn when watching “Love Story” than those who watched the comedy “Sweet Home Alabama.”

A Vanderbilt University study found that laughing out loud for 10-15 minutes per day burns between 10 and 40 calories. A good belly laugh causes one to gasp for air, thus exercises the diaphragm!

One group of University of Maryland volunteers were shown funny videos, while another group was shown stressful videos. The study showed that laughter keeps arteries from hardening, while stress does the opposite!
