Summer equals patio parties and beer. But as great as that sounds, all the calories from that beer could very well turn into a beer belly. Don't worry, though. We have the perfect solution!
In the summer, our beer consumption increases by approximately 31%. And although savoring a cold one in the sun is one of the best parts of summer, beer can be quite calorific.
But that doesn't mean you're doomed to come out with a beer belly. There is one thing you can do it to avoid it that doesn't involve passing up the pleasure of sipping on a nice, refreshing pint. Hint: it's one of our favorite sports.
You guessed it: sex.
Summer is one of the seasons where our libido reaches its maximum, which makes sex the perfect solution. Do you know how many calories you can burn during sex? Or how many minutes it would take to burn a pint of beer's worth of calories?
According to a study conducted by the University of Montreal, men burn an average of about 100 calories during sex, while women burn 69 calories. That's about 4.2 and 3.1 calories per minute respectively.
Taking this data into account, we computed how long it would take to burn the 86 calories in a pint of beer. Men would have to have sex for approximately 20 minutes and women would need 28 minutes.
An interesting fact that can be very useful if you're trying to watch your weight. Now, all that's left for you to do is put it into practice and enjoy your summer. Oh, and those 2 or 3 pints of beer!
