is it true that people who laugh a lot find it hard to lose weight?

because i find humor even in despair and people tell me that i find it hard to lose weight because i laugh a lot. people who are miserable are thinner. people who are serious are oftentimes not fat. and then there's this explanation that air goes into one's body etc. i find it ridiculous.

I don't think laughter has anything to do with weight. I'm not an expert though so I wouldn't know. I know this guy, he laughs at almost anything and he's as skinny as a stick. I also know a person who is definitely very overweight and he doesn't have a large sense of humor. I mean he'll laugh but he won't go crazy from laughter. So yeah, I don't think laughter has anything to do with it. Just do your cardio workouts and you'll weight in no time.

Laughing won't help you lose weight, nor does it make it hard to lose weight. If you laugh really really hard, MAYBE (just maybe) you'll feel a slight burn in your abdomen area, but you won't find any physical changes to your body.

I dont think so... There's no medical test or any survey says that a person who laugh alot is fat and those who are serious are thin or slim. I am a jolly person but why i am still slim, i want to gain even just a small weight but i found it very hard.. It is the metabolism of your body why your fat or slim... people who burns their fat alot and faster are slimmer and people who are fat mostly just stored the fats that they acquire to foods...
