I’m a proponent of good health, but I’m also an advocate of great sex! Seriously, folks, our bodies are made for enjoying intimacy (responsibly). However, our society as a whole leads a lifestyle that strongly hinders sexual arousal and pleasure from taking place. I’m referring to our diets. Food. The choices that we’re making every day in choosing what we eat.

Men and women who indulge in foods that are high in calories, leading to obesity and type 2 diabetes suffer significant consequences in the bedroom. Recently published article reports conclusive findings from a medical study about this very correlation. According to the author, Charles Bankhead, Staff Writer for MedPage Today, the study showed that results for participants included weight loss, as well as improved sexual ability and desire.

“Sexual function improved significantly and quickly in obese men with type 2 diabetes after weight loss with reduced-calorie diets,” Bankhead wrote about an Australian clinical study. “Erectile function, sexual desire, and urinary symptoms all improved significantly in 31 men who lost 5% to 10% of their body weight in eight weeks.”

Is this a joke? Actually, no. It’s absolutely true that sexual function improves with an increasingly healthy diet, because men and women also need high amounts of blood flow to the sex organs in order for them to function well. If the body’s blood circulation is slowed by cholesterol blockage, this essential blood flow hinders sensitivity and function at the worst time possible.

Not only does this blood flow blockage hinder the act of reproduction, it can also impact fertility. People who maintain a healthy weight and do not suffer from any vascular diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes have an advantage in starting their family. Their good health allows their bodies to successfully impregnate (guys) and become pregnant (ladies).

Moreover, when the mind is positively transformed, the body’s functions improve. Nobody would argue with the well known fact that personal self esteem and confidence about your physique leads to increased libido and better performance. In my many years consulting on health, I’ve seen individuals who have lost weight, shed their chains to cardiovascular disease and diet-related type 2 diabetes. One of my favorite visible effects of this health transformation is seeing the confidence radiating from their facial expressions, and even their posture.

So how did these groups regain their sexual interest through physical transformation? The participants adapted one of two different diets: either a liquid meal replacement for two meals daily and one small, nutrient-rich meal or a high-protein, low-fat, low-carbohydrate diet. The results were all positive, and the argument remains the same – eating nutritious, balanced foods in moderation will not only transform your physique but also your … well, let’s just say… your personal relations with your significant other! Go ahead, try the healthy diet. Just keep the more intimate details of your diet results to yourself – behind closed doors.
