It’s always a little jarring when your sex drive take a holiday. Not in the mood lately? Experts say these foods and drinks might be causing your sex drive to diminish.
French fries, chips, and chicken often contain trans fats, which screw with your blood sugar and make you feel lethargic. And when you don’t have energy, it’s harder to get in the mood for a horizontal workout.
Ice Cream and Cheese
Too much dairy can make you feel sluggish. Try to limit yourself to three servings a week. You should see results pretty quickly.
You know how it is-we’re all for hitting happy hour. But doing it too much can suppress your libido. If you find your sex drive isn’t as high as normal, cut back a little. Try taking a few days off from drinking, or alternating drinks with glasses of water when you’re out to make sure you stay hydrated.
Hamburgers and Hotdogs
Sure, these staples are yummy, but lower-grade meats (which normally end up in hamburgers and hot dogs) tend to be high in chemicals that can create a hormonal imbalance in your bod. Take a pass on the processed stuff and opt for organic, free-range lean meats instead. And just like dairy, try to limit yourself to three servings a week.
Cupcakes and Donuts
Having sweet stuff every once in while is totally fine. But if your sex drive is lower than usual, you might want to take a close look at how many sweets you’re eating. Too much sugar in your diet can cause your glucose levels to spike-and that can drag your libido down.
Some tap waters can be contaminated with synthetic chemicals-they can lower your energy levels and make you less amped to have sex. Try using a water filter at home to get rid of the extra toxins.
