Get angry - get skinny: Outrage will help you slim down and lose weight

  Hey guys, okay, I know it sounds weird, new studies show that we lose our appetite when we are disgusted and angry, Feeling outrage might help us lose weight, this study says.

   In moral behavioural tests, when people became disgusted by immoral acts, their appetite waned.
 
  ‘Exposure to moral violations reduces [food] consumption, and highlights a psychological truth in the metaphorical observation that moral violations “leave a bad taste” in one’s mouth,’ says Cindy Chan, who led the research.


  
   All the participants were given a chocolate milk drink while watching. Those who believed they were viewing an incest film, drank around a third less – 110g compared to 147g.
