There seems to be lots and lots of foods that can influence your sex life and performance. But have you ever wondered what your life would be if you change a bit your diet? Have you ever think that your food choices might be sabotaging you!? Some foods are known as antiaphrodisiac, these foods basically suppress your libido and are the worst foods for your sex life. Here are a few of them:
Soda (diet or not) has been linked, according to National Institutes of Health, to depression. Plus people who consume soda have a higher risk of suffering from diabetes, dental cavities, obesity, dehydration, bone loss and sexual dysfunction.
Food manufacturers use artificial sweeteners in their “sugar-free” foods. Though it makes the food taste good, artificial sweeteners inhibit serotonin, the chemical that makes us happy, and controls mood and libido.
Canned food is bad for you for so many reasons! Most canned food contains a large amount of sodium and a very low quantity of potassium, which will reduce blood flow to body parts such as the genitals.
The saturated fats in most cheeses and fatty meats clog your arteries, which affects the penal and vaginal arteries. And this is not very helpful for your sex life.
We all love our obsessions but some of them are bad habits. One coffee a day might harm your adrenal glands, which are responsible for producing stress hormones, and balancing the sex and thyroid hormones.
Soy-based foods are high in estrogen, which can affect the hormone balance in both men and women. Rumors say that Buddhist monks eat tofu to help curb their sex drives! So pay attention to how much soy foods you eat.
Not all the cheese can affect your sex life; but most of the cheese found in stores is made from cow’s milk that has been treated with antibiotics and growth hormones. Consumed in large quantities these hormones can affect your mood and create sexual dysfunction.
Same as with cheese, not all oils are bad. Poor oils (canola and vegetable oils) are sometimes responsible for conception problems. These types of oil release free radicals into the body, which can affect the reproductive system, and reduce the ability to conceive. You can replace these bad oils with coconut oils or ghee, and extra virgin olive oil.
A glass of wine or champagne is a good social companion, but too much alcohol will reduce the libido, decreases arousal and sensitivity. So while it might help start the conversation, alcohol can sabotage the actual act of sex.
