Everyone knows that you lose weight from eating right and exercising. However, are writers losing a little more weight than everyone else?
A recent study has found that women who write for 15 minutes per day are more likely to lose weight than women who do not write. During the study, women who took part in a short writing exercise in which they were asked to write about what they valued most lost more weight.
The values that the women wrote on were anything from religion to music. For the study, 45 undergraduate women were tested. Researchers found that women who wrote about their important values lose an average of 3.41 pounds. Conversely, women who were not writing actually gained weight, an average of 2.76 pounds.
“How we feel about ourselves can have a big effect. We think it sort of kicks off a recursive process,” said researcher, Christine Logel.
Therefore, the better people feel about their lives and themselves, the more likely they are to eat less and lose weight.
