Scientists say that laughter can help you fight flab.Forget gym or dieting and tune into your favourite comedy shows to shed those extra kilos, researchers have suggested. They claimed that an hour laughter can burn upto 100-120 calories and boost the energy a person uses by upto 20%. That is the equivalent of vacuuming for 40 minuites, walking for 15-20 minuites or doing 18-27 minuites of weightlifting.
Laughter gets the heart beating faster and boosts blood flow.As we giggle and gasp for air, we breath in more fresh air.The chest rises and falls and abdominal muscles get a good work out.So laughter helps us to stay trim and healthy.
