Sex and Weight Losssex can reduce your food cravings and help you shed pounds.
Though you can't actually count the calories you burn during sex as exercise, it does work in your favor when trying to lose weight. It is the satisfaction you get from the intimacy and the feel-good chemicals you receive in the brain from having sex that count. When your brain feels this satisfaction it stops sending you signals to eat.
The key to losing weight is to find something other than food to satisfy your needs. Sex is one such activity that can work in more ways than one. It produces the same feel-good chemical in the brain as food does. Aside from that, anything that keeps your mind and hands busy will keep you out of the refrigerator. And who can think of activity that is more fun?
The bonus is that eating healthy foods and exercising will increase your sex drive. Pair this with the fact that you are raising self-esteem because you are creating a stronger, slimmer you and you've got a win-win situation.
Sex and weight loss have another common link - stress. Sex reduces stress and stress-reduction is needed to lose weight. Sex also helps some people sleep better, which is also needed for weight loss.
All things consider, having safe sex and eating right go hand in hand and make weight loss not only possible, but enjoyable.
