Don’t Diet To Lose Weight. Watch Sports!
Have you tried “every” diet with no success? Maybe it’s time for a new approach. “Football widows” probably won’t like this, but there’s considerable evidence that simply watching sports will help you lose weight.

“We know that the sympathetic nervous system – which supplies the heart, sweat glands and blood vessels, as well as other tissues – increases its activity during actual exercise. Now we have shown that it increases when you are watching a moving scene as if you were running yourself.” – Vaughan Macefield, School of Medicine at the University of Western Sydney.
The Daily Mail reports more than 40% of women who wear jeans squeeze into a pair that are too small, rather than admit they need to go up a size.
