The New 'IT' Diet - Sex Diet

I didn't think this was an acutal real thing but when I typed it into Google (at works, opps) the following Wiki entry came up:

A sex diet is a lifestyle which maximizes the health benefits of regular sex. It is not technically a diet in the sense of a food-based regimen, but colloqually one in the sense of a system meant to improve health.

Properly performed, sexual activity may cause a number of health benefits, such as decreasing depression and boosting immunity. Sexual activity provides exercise, encouraging weight loss, and promoting cardiac health.[1] Some scientific studies show that intimacy is a factor in determining lifespan, and some informal studies have shown that frequent sex can improve intimate relationships.[2]

There is controversy about the necessity of monogamy in attaining the health benefits of sex and/or intimacy.
Some sex-diets involve a routine of partner-supported exercises designed to tone muscles and improve flexibility. Another type of sex-diet focuses simply on improving the experience of sexuality by extending and amplifying the orgasmic response.

Advocates, including the President of the American Academy of Clinical Sexologists, have noted the science behind the fitness and relationship benefits of the diet.[3] Kerry McCloskey, author of The Ultimate Sex Diet estimates that a half hour of sex burns about 200 calories.[4] However, the actual weight lost in this diet is hard to calculate.

According to The Ultimate Sex Diet by Author Kerry McCloskey review at Diets in Review:

Pro's:


  • Wake-up your sex life





  • Lose weight





  • Promotes a healthy heart





  • No counting




  • Con's:


  • Author not an expert in diet and nutrition





  • Some food restrictions




  • Conclusion
    The Ultimate Sex Diet kills two birds with one stone - have more sex with your partner and lose weight. This program not only suggests that frequent sex will help you lose weight and become healthier, it highly encourages it. The diet is fairly balanced, only restricting a few food items and including some that aren't typically. While the author is not an educated expert in this field, she presents a lot of scientific evidence to back up her claims.
