How many calories does crying burn?
Asked by angeline77 on Apr 02, 2009 in Weight Loss



During heartbreak, we feel sad and shed tears a lot.  Will it burn more calories from crying?


Answer

I have never seen a calorie count for crying as an activity, but since everything burns calories, crying does too.  A good cathartic cry that racks the body will burn more calories than will shedding a few silent tears.  I guess that crying and laughing burn about the same number of calories – 1.3 calories per minute, which does not amount to much.

Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
