Burning More Calories With Sex

Burning More Calories With Sex

Over the past week I’ve read two very interesting blog posts about burning additional calories. The first one was from Cherrie of “I ‘m a Hot Mom , in which she motivates us to be active because not only do we burn more calories during activity than at rest, but also because there is an after-burn affect, where we burn more calories at rest for a short period of time after being active. Makes sense because it takes calories to recover from exercise.

The second article was from Lisa Johnson Fitness in which she points out that not only is sex a great way to burn calories, but it’s also very healthy & good for you (sign me up folks – or maybe that’s why I’m in my current “condition”?). One of the comments on her site also leads to an article about how many calories you burn during sex.

Now, my mind being the way it operates has come to the conclusion that not only will you burn extra calories by having sex, but you’ll also burn more calories later on in the day after having sex… How’s that for a little motivation to set your alarm a little earlier and get a “jump start” on the day?

    Thanks Janice 🙂

    I was actually a little surprised with my research that showed so many health benefits to sex. It was a pleasant surprise. Shared w/my husband and got a rather snarky answer … LOL

    Not just calorie burn, but think of all the positive mental benefits – it releases endorphins and other feel-good hormones. It brings you closer to your partner, releases stress, the benefits are endless!
