According to scientists, an average person cries around 16.5 gallons of tears throughout their lifetime. However, people always want to hide their feelings and at times even embarrassed of them. Do you know that emotional crying is another way to stop you from gaining extra weight? Now we can think that this fact would be helpful to release the gallons of tears which has been stuck inside our hearts and minds.

Life can be tough for everyone, situations are hard, so that is the main reason why I want to tell you that there are 2 sides of the coin. Let’s look at what science has to say.

I think the majority of people won’t believe that they can lose weight by letting their emotions out. There are moments in life that you face where you stress out, eat a lot of food, and after some days you would understand that you cannot fit into your favorite dress because you have gain weight. So then you feel ridiculous!

But it all depends on where the cortisol finally is.

It is fair if you cannot understand the point, Cortisol is a steroid hormone that regulates a wide range of processes throughout the body, including metabolism and the immune response. A hormone that is released in response to stress, is connected to obesity.

A lot of people know that this hormone benefits us fight anything that’s nerve-racking or tense. The issue here is that these days’ people do not physically fight for existence, but to live with anger and frustration. As an outcome, our body realizes that we have used some calories to deal with our stressors and that we need to refill them, even if we haven’t.

In the meantime, scientists have also found that tears contain hormones that increase the cortisol level. They are prolactin, leu-enkephalin, and adrenocorticotropin. These are produced when are going through a lot of pressure.

Therefore, when we don’t suppress our emotions and cry, such hormones are released and our cortisol level reduces. As a result of that, our body gets the signal that we don’t have to keep fat since the stressful situation is over now.

With many Thanks to science, now we know the secret of losing weight in hard situations.
