    Relatively. It feels good, but on average you'll lose about 124 calories in a 30 minute session, which is not a lot. There are more effective forms of exercise when it comes to burning fat.

    Get a jumping rope. It is CHEAP and burns 10 calories per minute or 600 calories an hour. No gym membership needed. It will tone up your core too.

    The latest research has found that the men and women with unexplained weight gain, had one thing in common …. A low core body temperature is the temperature of your internal cells.

    In fact, scientists have found that the lower your core body temperature, the slower your metabolism.

                                          And that’s why

    Not really. The additional calorie burn from that activity isn't all that high at all. While it may be fun, for really good calorie burn, more intense cardio activity is needed. 


    At up to 3 - 4 calories per minute for sex, a 10 minute session could result in a calorie burn of 30 - 40. Consider that running 1 mile in 10 mins, provides a calorie burn of around 100.

    Maybe something. If you want  actually reduce, you  need to do some exercise and avoid all kinds of processed and sugary foods. Early to go to bed and of course wake up early. Then, you might help to reduce

    It just makes you hungrier.   Exercise has almost nothing to do with significant fat loss or gain.

    It's more fun than dieting.

    Is sex good for burning calories. I really don't need to ever have sex again if it comes down to you having to pretend I'm some character I'm not. I'm livid.
