Losing weight success…
Robert Guinnane and Angelina Wilson’s quirky story appears in THE SUN newspaper…
Robert, 27 has lost three stones – having sex seven to ten times a day…
After his weight peaked at over 18stones, Robert Guinnane 27, knew he had to do something.
But the stay at home dad – he has a little boy, 5, with partner Angelina Wilson – didn’t fancy going to the gym or starving himself.
He’d tried running and boxing in the past but although he had lost some weight he’d become injured and the weight had quickly piled back on.
So when he read that sex burned calories – doctors claim just ten minutes of vigorous sexual activity can burn around 100 calories, the the equivalent of running a mile on a treadmill – he decided to embark on the sex diet.
Angelina, 36 wanted him to lose weight as well – and she was willing to give the sex diet a try.
So the couple – who always enjoyed sex at least four times a week – decided to up their sex to around seven to 10 times a day. At the same time, Robert cut out unhealthy takeaways and ate more veg, fruit and lean meat.
Robert says: “We didn’t know if it would work – but thought we’d have fun trying.”
In fact since starting the sex diet eight months ago, Robert has now lost three stones. He says having sex so often does burn an incredible amount of calories – in the first month alone he lost ten Ibs. To fuel the sex sessions he ate bananas and porridge!
And having reached a respectable weight of 15stones and got rid of the worrying tummy – is now on the maintenance part of the sex diet, which is having sex once a night.
However, if Robert finds himself piling on the pounds again, he knows he only has to up the sex to lose the weight again!
Angelina didn’t have any weight to lose but she found she could eat whatever she wanted. The bonus was that the sexercise diet also brought them closer together.
The couple’s story appeared over two pages of The Sun and in it they gave some tips on how to fit in so much sex with every day life. For example even a ten minute quickie while dinner is in the oven will burn 100 calories and it all adds up.
* Scientists recently said sex is the best way to say slim. Men use 120 calories during a half hour of sex and women up to 90, say researchers from University of Quebec, Canada.
Robert says: “Friends and family all thought my sex diet was amazing. But when I filled in the Featureworld selling a story form, I had no idea whether or not if we could sell the story or it would be of interest to people. I was delighted when Alison said she loved our story and pleased that others might be able to try losing weight as I did – it is definitely more fun than going to the gym!”
