One Important Step to Boost Your Sex Drive Without Drugs.

Hi Friends,
I received this article in my email and felt it was so good
that I would post it to my blog. It's on a subject we don't
like to discuss but is a real issue in our relationships.

Your sexual desire increases as your waist line decreases!

New research has shown that losing about 13% of your
body weight over a two year period boosts sexual desire.

Your sex drive increases because you feel more sexually
attractive.

200 people weighing an average weight close to 250
pounds completed a questionnaire.  They were asked to rate
their feelings on lack of sex drive to reluctance to being
seen undressed and difficult sexual performances.

After being in a weight loss program for 12 months the
participants completed another questionnaire and the
results were:

26 percent reported not feeling sexually attractive,
down from 68 percent at the beginning

34 percent report ed not wanting to be seen undressed,
down from 63 percent

11 percent report not enjoying sexual activity, down
from 21 percent

15 percent reported having little sexual desire, down
from 39 percent

15 percent reported avoiding sexual encounters, down
from 29 percent

12 percent reported difficulty with sexual performance,
down from 27 percent

Low self esteem due to being overweight impacts sexual
desire levels as well as health and lifespan.

Martin Binks a Duke University psychologist presented a
study at a meeting of the Obesity Society showing that
shedding a few pounds can improve things in the bedroom
by making people feel better about their bodies.

You reap a lot of benefit from moderate weight loss of 10
to 13%.  Binks said, "It's a wonderful message.  You don't
have to reach some ideal weight to be healthy and happy."

The feelings of being unattractive and the unwillingness
to be seen naked deadened the sexual desire.  Plus, when
they wanted to have sex, the excess weight made it an ordeal.

That certainly was true of Carlene Wellington, 62, and her
husband, Gary, 63, of suburban Tacoma, Wash.

Both were a healthy weight when they married 42 years
ago, until she started to "show love" by cooking massive
amounts of food.  She and her husband ballooned to 237 and
355 pounds, respectively, and their sex life suffered.

"We had about 600 pounds in our bed," she said.

"I called it my workbench," because sex was so physically
difficult," he said.

Carlene was embarrassed by her body. "I could get
dressed without showing my skin, and had to have the lights
off when we had sex," she said.

During sex, she often felt pressure in her chest, caused by
anxiety and dread.

She now weighs 153 pounds and her tall husband a trim
235."It's just like being married to a different person -
or going back 25 years," she said.

Her husband recalled the day 13 years ago - after the
couple has just lost a combined 200 pounds - when he looked
at his wife one morning and told her she had a cute butt.

"I don't know if she thought I was trying to make her late
for work or not," he said.  But he was struck by how much
he wanted to.

"The term "love is blind" is true," he said.  But now that
he and his wife have both lost weight, "things work better,"
and sex is again a joy.

A 13% weight loss for someone weighing 250 pounds is
only 32.5 pounds.  A weight loss of 2.7 pounds per week for
12 weeks would result in a loss of 32.4 pounds.

Lose weight and boost your sex drive.
