Write to shed flab: Study

Press Trust of India London | Updated on November 15, 2017

Ladies, this is the “write” script if you want to shed the flab: Put pen to paper.

A new study by the University of Waterloo in Canada has found that women who write down what matters most to them in life are more likely to lose weight. The research showed women who wrote about their core values lost more weight over months than women who did not.

Prof Christine Logel, the study's co-author, said: “When something threatens your sense that you're a good person, like failing a test or having a fight with a friend, we can buffer that self-integrity by reminding ourselves how much we love our children, for example.”
