Watch horror movies to lose weight, fitness trainers say

horror movies and weight loss

If you are looking for a fun and easy way to lose weight, you might want to try watching horror movies. According to some fitness trainers, watching scary films can help you burn calories and fat, as well as improve your cardiovascular health and metabolism.

“Watching horror movies is a great form of exercise, because it triggers the fight-or-flight response in your body,” said Jack Black, a personal trainer and a horror movie fan. “When you watch a horror movie, your heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing increase, and your muscles tense up. This means that you are burning more calories and fat than when you are resting or watching a comedy.”

Black said that he recommends his clients to watch at least one horror movie per week, preferably in the dark and with loud sound. He said that he has seen positive results in his clients who have followed his advice.

“One of my clients lost 10 pounds in a month, just by watching horror movies,” Black said. “She didn’t change anything else in her diet or lifestyle. She just watched one horror movie every weekend, and she was amazed by the difference.”

Black said that watching horror movies can also have other benefits, such as boosting your immune system, reducing stress, and enhancing your mood.

“Watching horror movies can stimulate the production of adrenaline, endorphins, and dopamine in your brain,” Black said. “These hormones can help you cope with stress, pain, and fear, and make you feel more alert, happy, and energetic.”
