Low Carb Diets Equal Better Sex!

I have heard from numerous people that once they go on a low carb diet, their sex drive increases dramatically.  At first I wondered why but then after thinking about it I can name a few reasons:

  • Following a low carb diet means that you are eating more fats (good fats). Fats are responsible for the manufacture of hormones including testosterone and estrogen.  Increased testosterone means increased sex drive
  • An eye-opening study published recently in the Journal of Clinical Investigation shows that sugar overloading shuts off a gene that helps control estrogen and testosterone levels, zapping your sex drive
  • Good fats provide more energy than any other food group so you feel more energized to engage in sex
  • Low carb diets elevate mood which puts you in the mood
  • High blood sugar negatively effects mood, energy level, and, hence- interest in sex
  • Diets high in sugar also cause fatigue, making active sex seem draining. High levels of carbs and sex just don’t mix
  • Like sex, low carb diets are stimulating. Eating the right amount of carbs creates incredible energy
  • Eating too much glucose and fructose causes us to gain fat which in turn has been shown to shut off the sex genes
  • Chronic high blood sugar from your old way of eating contributes to neuropathy (nerve damage) and impaired blood circulation, both of which lead to a decrease or delay in erections, lubrication, genital sensation and orgasm
  • When you lose weight, you feel better physically and emotionally. You have a new body and are less inhibited
  • Excitement about your results and achievements causes an even stronger drive for enjoying life and ultimately the love-making in it

Bottom line is that dieting impacts both physical and mental health.  You need the energy to have sex and if you are not in the right frame of mind you will not desire sex.  So, follow the low carb diet for just one month and see what happens to your libido!  It’s certainly worth a try don’t you think?
