Cry to lose weight! Scientists come to the surprising conclusion 

Cry to lose weight! Scientists come to the surprising conclusion 

A person sheds an average of about 624 liters of tears throughout his life, according to scientists. But people often prefer to suppress their emotions and often feel ashamed.

Emotions can be seen as a way to lose excess weight and all those liters of tears, can become useful.

We all know that life can reserve us difficult moments to find a solution.

Therefore we want to remind you that there are always two sides to the same coin. Scientists explain the other side of tears.

It may seem hard to believe that you can lose weight simply by expressing your emotions. Many of us have experienced moments of deep sadness and even despair and we know it can become a vicious circle: you are stressed, eat more and after a few days you realize that your favorite jeans are too tight, so you fixate on yourself even more and so on.

So just thinking that such a situation can help you lose weight seems ridiculous.

It all has to do with cortisol

It is true that cortisol, a hormone produced by our body in stressful situations, is linked to obesity, but it is a feature of the contemporary world.

Many of us know that this hormone helps us fight anything that is disturbing or stressful, providing us with energy. The problem is that, nowadays, people do not use physical energy to fight and survive, but they are left in anger and frustration. Consequently, in the presence of stress and strong negative emotions, our body thinks it is using calories to deal with the situation and that we need to get more.

Now, scientists have discovered that emotional tears contain hormones: prolactin, leu-enkephalin and adrenocorticotropin (also called ACTH). All of these hormones are produced when we are under pressure.

What happens is that when we do not suppress our emotions and cry, these hormones are released and our cortisol level is reduced. As a result, our body receives the signal that we no longer need extra calories to cope with the "emergency".
