One thing everyone must know and understand is that each of the food we eat has implications on our body, and our health generally; and this can either be a positive or negative implication. Ranging from all sorts of things we consume, either drinks or food, some foods are good for a particular time, while some should be avoided at some specific time.
Given this, when it comes to “making love” with one’s partner, it’s medically advised to stay off or skip some foods due to their negative implication on your body.
Thus, according to Healthline, below are some foods you should skip or avoid before making love:
Coffee contains caffeine, and having too much caffeine can raise your cortisol levels, which is the stress hormone. Hence, you feel stressed, and eventually, you become too tired to do anything.
2. Salty foods (high-salt content)
This increased water retention and bloating. This can include French fries or movie popcorn.
3. High-fat foods (saturated fats)
This includes cheese, cakes, biscuits, bacon, sausage, and so on. This will hurt your circulation over time, and will slow the flow of blood to the “organs”. This may also cause a “turnoff” for either the male or female. Likewise, studies have shown that it may lead to unpleasant body odor.
Research has proven that alcohol lowers testosterone and dampens your nervous system, and thus, it affects your circulation. Because of this, it might be difficult for you to become “aroused.”
5. Carbonated drinks or energy drinks
Just like coffee, energy drinks (or carbonated drinks) have too much caffeine, and this will the same effect as coffee. Some of the side effects may be dehydration, palpitations, high blood pressure, and so on.
Note that it’s not wrong to eat (or drink) any of these foods listed above, however, they can hurt you if taken before making love.
