- Sugar and artificial sweeteners. Sugar hides in many foods including bread, condiments, tomato sauce, soda drinks and fruit juices.
- Foods which contain preservatives. Preservatives directly affect your ability to perform in bed and are found in almost all packaged foods including condiments – mayonnaise, humus, tomato sauce and potato chips, corn chips, etc.
- Wheat. Wheat is a common ingredient found in cereals, bread, sandwiches, muffins, bagels, biscuits, cakes, meat patties, processed meats and as a thickening agent.
But why and how do these foods affect your performance in bed?
Sugar and artificial sweeteners can give you a temporary high and you may end up crashing and feel less energetic during sex. In addition, if you don’t combine enough fibers with sugar, your body will make a lot of effort to process the sugar.
Preservatives are not processed by our bodies. Man hasn’t evolved enough to process them yet. So, they lead to cancer and other unwanted disorders.
In case of wheat, your insulin is spiked, then it crashes. Wheat also contains gluten which causes many digestive disorders. Sluggish digestive system means a sluggish brain, which means loss of sexual dexterity.
