Lack of energy in your sexual relationships? Try this...

Hey! Guess what! You can lose weight and you don’t even have to exercise! The Dr. Bernstein diet advertises medically safe weight loss with no need to exercise. This is the perfect solution for those people out there who struggle with their image, but stubbornly refuse to get up and exercise.
In all fairness, the entire weight loss industry is overwhelming. There is a ton of information out there advocating different methods of weight loss, so which one do you go with? And what do you do if you have tried several methods and none of them have worked? How about turning to the one who advertises on the radio that you can go on a diet and lose a bunch of weight without having to exercise at all. It’s the perfect solution. Lets face it, no one has time to exercise anyway, and life would be a lot easier if you could look great without the effort. These diets may be expensive though, and can be inconvenient. No worries. You can Google “weight loss without exercise” and come up with around 44 million results.
What’s wrong with attempting this path to fitting into those skinny jeans? And why is it horrible that any weight loss program would advocate a lifestyle that is absent of regular exercise? At the end of the day it doesn’t matter if you’re fat, skinny, or somewhere in between, everyone needs to exercise.
Sure if you are obese and you lose a lot of weight on a no-exercise program you will alleviate some of the health problems and risks that you face, but you’re still putting your health at risk by remaining inactive.
Some of the negative consequences to not participating in a regular exercise routine include: “coronary heart disease, strokes, high blood pressure, breathlessness, flabby body, little energy, stiff joints, osteoporosis, poor posture,” weight gain and it may lead to a “lack of energy for your sexual relationship,” according to BBC World Service.
On the other hand, there are many wonderful benefits to regular exercise outside of simply looking great and feeling great, which include: “increased relaxation, better sleep and mood, strong immune function,” as well as “stronger bones, a lower heart rate, an improved complexion,” and of course the ever-elusive weight lose, according to webmd.com.
So get off your ass and go for a run, lift some weights and maybe do some sit-ups. You may just wake up the next morning feeling a little bit better about yourself.
If you are against feelings of happiness and general well being though, please, by all means, continue to sit at a desk all day and use studying as an excuse for why you never make it outside your front door for a run.
A 4.0 GPA will not save you from having a stroke though, nor will it protect you from the fight that erupts between you and your partner after you roll over and pretend to sleep for the eighth night in a row.
