The Ultimate Sex Diet

Have you ever been at the start of a spicy sexual romance and noticed that the pounds seem to just melt away without you doing anything?

As it turns out sex and romance can cause natural weight loss. And not just because it’s good exercise – there is so much more to sex that is important.

The Ultimate Sex Diet

The Sex Diet and Natural Weight Loss

1. Sex releases endorphins.

Endorphins are your body’s feel-good chemicals –sex is really the ultimate mood enhancer. The more you have, the more endorphins are released. The better you feel the less likely you are to reach for food to uplift your moods.

2. Orgasms lower your appetite.

Orgasms, among other things, increase your body’s production of serotonin. Serotonin is a natural anti-depressant and decreases your cravings for food – especially carbs. Just replace those carbohydrates with sex.

3. Sex decreases your stress levels.

When your stress levels decrease, so does your cortisol. Lowering your cortisol helps to banish that belly bulge, and is a pivitol part of any sex diet that results in natural weight loss. 

4. Orgasms and sex improve your sleep quality

Better quality sleep means faster weight loss – every time. Quality sleep makes every weight loss regimen more effective because deep sleep triggers the release of growth hormone. Growth hormone increases your ability to build muscle and muscle burns fat, even when you are at rest. Also growth hormone decreases your tendency to build fat by improving your insulin sensitivity.

5. You burn more calories than sitting or sleeping.

According to some sources, sex burns 400 to 800 calories per hour! (Note: this would entail very vigorous sex which most people do not do. Neither do most people have sex for an hour). But 100 calories seems reasonable for a 30 minute romp.

6. Orgasms and arousal condition your heart and lungs.

Above and beyond the pure exercise benefits, the physiological changes that occur during an orgasm tone your cardiovascular system.

7. A healthy sex life improves your self-image.

When you’re having great sex you feel better about yourself in a way that promotes healthy behaviors. It’s easier to take great care of your body when you’re happy with it.

Start by making sex a weekly priority. So often sex gets skipped because you’re tired after a long day or because you’re stressed and frustrated, but taking the time for sex will help all of those problems and it is very important for your sexual health (especially for men) and creating a closer bond with your partner.

Kerry McCloskey, the author of the book The Ultimate Sex Diet recommends having sex three to five times per week, which can be accomplished by doubling up on the weekends,"

The best thing about it is that sex is a whole body exercise, and using different positions can change the muscle groups that are used to create variety. Recent research has shown that exercise in short bursts over the course of the day can be as effective as 30 to 40 minutes in a row. This means you could use sex as 15 to 20 minutes of your exercise routine and then do something else to fill in your other 30 to 40 minutes of exercise.

Let’s not forget the last perk – sex is the type of exercise that people really don’t ever get bored of doing—unless you’re caught up in a routine. Just don’t forget that sex alone isn’t usually enough. In order to lose weight and keep it off you also need to make nutritional changes, incorporate activity into your daily life, work with your emotions and make yourself a priority. If you want natrural weight loss be sure you are satisfying your sex diet as necessary!
