Who doesn’t love the idea of sex as a workout strategy?
Imagine – have fun, have orgasms, burn calories, and get in shape – all at the same time. Perfect!
Sex does burn calories. Experts estimate 30 minutes of sex burns 85 to 150 calories. Those calories could add up if you are having sex often enough. Theoretically, you need to burn about 3,500 calories to lose a pound of body weight, so if you were using up 100 calories every time you had sex, you could lose one pound if you had sex 35 times. That sounds pretty good. If you had sex more often or for a longer period of time, you could burn even more calories.
To help you get started on your new work out routine, here are the top 5 sex positions to burn the most calories and also strengthen your relationship with your partner! ;)
1. Doggy Style
Going on your fours will surely impact your glutes and your quadriceps. Imagine you are doing pushups while in this position and work your arms up and down with every thrust. Your shoulders and biceps will feel the impact immediately. Sex can’t get any more interesting than this.
Riding a horse is considered to be a great workout as the lower part of a woman’s body get the maximum exposure. Imagine riding your partner the same way. With your legs braced on the bed, the butt will get exercise too. To increase the pleasure and also the sweat, squat on your partner’s body and balance yourself with your upper body, making it an intense workout.
3. Reverse Cowgirl
Ask him to lie on the bed and sit on top of him facing the other side. Make sure you keep both your feet as close to each other as possible to increase friction and add to the pleasure. Hold his feet and move up and down. It will be a great exercise as well as great source of pleasure for both of you.
4. Erotic Push
Let your guy sit on a couch and have him lean back slightly. Lie on his thighs as your hands touch the ground and slowly ease him into yourself. Move in circular motions while doing pushups with your hands and feel the difference.
One of the most sweaty sex positions, the lotus position requires you to sit on your partner’s lap facing him. Your partner needs to be seated for the same. As both of you match each other's rhythm while making love, your glutes, butt and thighs will get the maximum workout. Continue with this position and you might never have to go to the gym ever.
Want to know the sexiest foods to eat to ignite fire in the bedroom but also boost fat loss?
Feel like you’re doing everything right on your diet plan but still not seeing the results you desire?
Many people find themselves in this position. They are working hard on their approach and taking care to follow their diet to the letter. But yet, something is amiss. The scale just isn’t going downward and they aren’t getting the results they were hoping for.
Often, the big problem is not their effort or motivation. The problem is that they are letting certain foods into their diet plan that are sabotaging their results. Often these foods are designed to be fat loss foods but they really aren’t. Instead, they’re holding you back from success.
What are these foods? Let’s go over three foods that you need to cut out of your diet immediately.
Fruit Flavored Yogurts
Fruit flavored yogurts are a favorite among many dieters but little do they know they’re digging into pint-sized sugar bombs each time they eat a small container.
Next time you’re picking out your favorite yogurt, double check the sugar content. You might just find yourself surprised to know there are 15 or more grams of sugar per serving.
Of course you can purchase the sugar-free varieties, but then you’ll be taking in a number of unwanted artificial sweeteners, which can be just as bad for you.
Instead, opt for plain Greek yogurt. Flavor it yourself by adding a handful of fresh berries.
Next up on the list of foods that you want to get out of your diet plan are any products that are built to be ‘fat free’. These often state that they are fat free on the label and proud of it.
But ask yourself, if the fat is removed, what is added? Something had to be added otherwise these just wouldn’t taste good.
The answer to that is sugar. Sugar has often been added to these foods and is what is causing them to still taste appealing.
And, if you are trying to lose body fat, sugar is just as bad — if not worse — than fat is.
Finally, the last of the foods that you need to be careful about including in your diet plan are protein bars. These may seem like a great option since they do contain protein and you’re probably trying to get more protein into your day.
But once again, you need to check that sugar content. Most protein bars are upwards of 15 grams of sugar or more per bar. Some measure in as high as 30 or even 40 grams of sugar depending on the calorie content.
In actuality, these aren’t much more than a glorified chocolate bar. While you can buy a few bars that do keep the sugar content very low (five grams or less per bar), you do need to search for those. Be careful about buying these bars.
So there are three foods that you may be currently eating that could be causing you some issues. Are any of these in your diet?
