So, here comes the question: how to lose weight?

Mostly, we quit the delicious food and live a dull dieting life (if you enjoy dieting, please skip off this and forget my words). Also, as a fitness follower, you may choose to work out to shape a tempting body.

Any easier and faster way to lose weight?

Yes, go to watch some horror movies!

According to the study by the University of Westminster in the UK found that watching horror movies can speed up the burning of calories and thus achieve weight loss. 

Why watching horror movies can lose weight? Here is a detailed explanation for it, and list the top 10 horror movies to lose weight.


The study found that, when people feel fear, their heartbeats will faster and their tension doubles. Thus the burning of calories can speed up.

Lose weight by watching a horror film

The researchers found that people who watched Stanley Kubrick's horror film "The Shining" may burn 184 calories, equivalent to the number of calories consumed by a 40-minute walk. 

The results show that fat burns faster when watching horror movies than other types of TV shows.


Why watching horror movies can lose weight?

Watching horror movies is prone to tension and anxiety, stimulating the body to release adrenaline and accelerating the basal metabolic rate (BMR). Thus, it eventually helps to burn more calories.


Watching horror movies can make both blood cardia and heartbeat accelerate. It will also accelerate the heartbeat, blood flow throughout the entire body. Additionally, the level of epinephrine in the body will also rise.


It is because the body releases adrenaline, which works quickly, that the basal metabolic rate increases, eventually causing the body to burn more calories. The body suddenly feels intense stress (which in this study is due to fear), releases adrenaline, which also reduces appetite.
