Research Uncovers Some Fun – And Healthy – Alternatives To Workouts, Dieting

August 5, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Realbuzz.com surveyed recent scientific research that offers some fun -- but healthy -- alternatives to strenuous workouts and strict dieting. One study, for example, finds that repeating “mirthful laughter” can improve mood, lower blood pressure, reduce bad cholesterol and strengthen the immune system – just like exercising. Another fun option is eating fiber-packed popcorn, which lowers cholesterol and contains B vitamins. An occasional popcorn snack is a healthy addition to the diet, “so long as you cut down on the sugar, salt and oils.”  Other fun alternatives include chocolate, sunshine and music.
