You may be asking yourself, how could this be?

Moviegoers around the world may already know the SECRET that I am about to share with you – that may burn up to 200 EXTRA calories per hour.

The secret to boosting calorie burn on a Friday or Saturday night, all while sitting on your favorite chair, couch, or recliner…

Watch a scary movie!

And researchers in the UK have SHOWN that watching a scary movie may be one secret to boosting your overall calorie burning.

Sit tight, get your favorite air-popped popcorn, and prepare to be AMAZED!

Scary Movies and Calorie Burning

Researchers in the UK have found a startling new link between watching scary movies and increasing your calorie burn.

And the scarier the movie, the more potential there is to burn calories.


The researchers believe that scary movies may create an adrenaline rush, which could cause many changes in your body.

They believe, when exposed to a frightful movie, or in times of acute stress (like fear), could cause your heart to race, blood to pump faster, and nutrients to be shuttled elsewhere.

And this increase in your heart rate response, may curb your food cravings, boost your basal metabolic rate, and may help you burn more calories.

Some movies may burn as many calories as a 30-minute walk!

But be warned: no scary movie can combat the intake of buttered movie popcorn, super-sized soft drinks, and jumbo candy treats!

Here are the TOP Nine films that researchers found were able to burn the most calories:

• The Shining  184 calories

• Jaws  161 calories

• The Exorcist  158 calories

• Alien  152 calories

• Saw  133 calories

• A Nightmare on Elm Street  118 calories

• Paranormal Activity  111 calories

• The Blair Witch Project  105 calories

• The Texas Chain Saw Massacre  107 calories

Tips to Remember

Before you go out and rent a movie, there are other tips that you need to keep in mind in order to burn these amounts.

Include Healthy Snack Treats…

In order to keep your calorie burn positive, you need to make sure that you avoid the high-calorie movie theater popcorn, candy, and soda.

Opt for healthier alternatives such as air-popped popcorn, trail mix, seeds, water, or a serving of fruit, to minimize your caloric intake and to be sure you “scare” those calories away.

You need to watch the movie…

You should also watch the movie and try not to cover your eyes or avert your stare from the screen.

This may result in lower calorie burn and a lower adrenaline rush.

And this could prevent you from burning as many calories as you can during the movie!

In as Little as 60 Minutes

There are plenty of ways to burn extra calories, boost your fat burning, and increase your weight loss.

But if you want a way to burn fat – just by sitting – try watching a horror movie tonight!

Now this may seem NUTTY, but face it if you like movies especially scary ones then give it a shot. All you got to lose is some FAT.

Dream, Believe, Achieve

Have a “FIT” day,
