10 best sex positions for weight loss

Losing weight having sex, seem too good to be true but sex can actually burn calories and tighten muscles if done on a regular basis. Sex makes you sweat and some sexual positions demand a lot from certain muscle groups! If you skip your cardio for the day, get erotic and experience the health benefits of sex internally and externally. Here are some facts that support the idea that sex should be the next exercise craze for weight loss.

Calories count
To lose weight you must burn more calories than you eat. The best way to burn calories is by exercising. If you have ever ended up sweaty and winded after sex, you've probably just spent a substantial amount of calories. In fact, just a half-hour of vigorous sex can burn from 150--350 calories. This is the same as taking a fast walk, lifting weights or jogging for the same amount of time. An hour of very active sex burns the same amount of calories that are in a Big Mac. So, an overindulgence can be rectified by a little time with your partner.
Boosting Self Esteem
According to research sex may boost your self esteem enough to help you lose weight. A boost in self esteem raises serotonin levels in your brain. This is the hormone that helps you stop eating when you are full. The more of the hormone you have, the less likely you are to overeat.

Foreplay through kissing can burn quite a bit of calories. A 150 pound person can burn up to 18 calories every 15 minutes by kissing. So, just an extra 30 minutes of kissing before getting to the deed can burn an extra 36 calories.


Sex can also incorporate weight lifting if done creatively. Lifting your partner and raising your own body weight with your arms and legs can build muscle. More muscle burns more calories.


So, as you can see, timing is everything. To burn calories, and ultimately lose weight, you need to stretch sex out into more than a quickie. While morning “quickies” may be fun and spontaneous, to get weight loss benefits from sex, you have to invest the time you would in a typical cardiovascular workout at the gym. Fox News suggests 30-minute sex sessions with your spouse, citing that you could burn up 200 calories per session. Adding more foreplay to the act increases the calorie burn even more.

How to lose weight with sex
Sex is hot! If you're bored with the gym and at-home workout DVDs just don't keep you motivated, take advantage of a weight loss routine that keeps you in your bed, snuggled with your spouse a little longer. Sex is celebrated as a great way to lose weight and stay fit. In fact, studies show that when aroused, a person's pulse rate can reach that of an athlete giving his all, ranging from about 70 to 150 beats per minute. 

Just like with any workout routine, adding variety can maximize results and keep you engaged, and the same applies to sex. Avoid the same boring routines because, it can get dull and leave you less than excited about sex with your spouse. Here are some good positions to enjoy an awesome sex thriller and lose weight.
