Sweating in the gym everyday, going for a walk every morning or jogging every alternate evening, all these activities surely help you shed those extra pounds. But, after a while, boredom starts taking over and all these weight loss techniques excite you no more.

However, there is always one thing that can make your heart pound no matter how many times you do it. Yes! You guessed it right. The act between the sheets can never bore you. But, does sex help you reduce weight? Sure it does! Read on to know how it happens.

Sex and Weight Loss

Sex Burns Calories

You must re-consider your plans of just lying in the bed and watching your favourite show because there is much more that you can do while lying down and which will be much healthier than watching television. Do the enjoyable exercise together and burn as many as 88 calories in one go.

Sex can Reduce Cravings for Fat

When you have sex regularly, it can keep the high-anxiety hormone, cortisol under control. If your body has a high level of cortisol your appetite for high-fat increases. You can also reduce your blood pressure even when everything in your life is not falling in place.

Sex can Double Fat Loss

When you lose out on the precious hours of sleep your body loses its ability to shed fat, no matter how healthy your diet is. But sex makes you fall asleep like an infant. Sex releases oxytocin, which is cuddle hormone that helps regulate slumber. When your body receives sufficient sleep it can increase the amount of fat you lose while dieting.

Sex and Weight Loss

Sex can Help you Manage your Diet

Regular sex can improve your body image and give a boost to your self-esteem. When you find yourself appealing it motivates you to eat healthy.

Good Sex Keeps you Slimmer

When a guy loses weight, they experience a boost in their testosterone levels and can see a reverse in their erectile dysfunction. In women, workout can enhance arousal, orgasms and overall satisfaction. But, what seems to be a more difficult task is maintaining the body weight that you have attained after rigorous weight loss sessions. So, let sex do the needful. Whenever you skip a morning walk make sure you have some fun between the sheets that night.

Losing weight while having some fun is almost everyone’s dream. So, why not get started tonight!
