3 Secrets for a Steamier Sex Life
Boost your sex life with diet, exercise -- and a can-do attitude
Better sex through diet and exercise? You bet. Eating the right kinds of
foods and getting plenty of muscle-strengthening exercise is just the
prescription for a healthier sex life.
A dash of positive attitude ties it all together: You have to believe
you're hot if you want to make things sizzle in the bedroom. Being sexy and
self-confident is just a state of mind.
Attitude Is Everything
Believe in yourself. Reward your successful weight loss with an alluring
outfit or lingerie that showcases your new figure -- even if you're still far
from your goal. If you feel good about your body, that feeling is communicated
loud and clear to your sweetheart.
We all would love to have the bodies of supermodels, but let's be realistic:
Your main squeeze is loving the new you and your renewed sense of well-being --
a positive byproduct of your diet and exercise routine!
A healthy diet, regular exercise, and a positive attitude are only the
beginning. It also helps to get plenty of sleep, quit smoking, and control the
stress in your life. Not only will you look better, you'll feel good about
yourself -- a real boost in the between-the-sheets department.
The Secret to Sexual Prowess
Both men and women can get great results if they follow the advice from Lynn
Fischer's book, The Better Sex Diet. The author suggests that if you eat
a heart-healthy diet, the benefits to your heart will improve the blood flow to
other organs in the body. And increasing the blood flow to sexual organs will
increase desire and function.
The theory is simple. Good health is an integral part of good sex, and
eating healthfully and exercising regularly is the pathway to good health.
The book is based on Dean Ornish's research on reversing heart disease with
a very low-fat, almost vegetarian, diet. Fischer recommends eating a low-fat
diet with lots of fiber, grains, fruits, nuts, vegetables, and lean sources of
dairy and protein. No mystery here, just creative packaging that reiterates the
message that a healthy diet goes a long way toward a satisfying lifestyle.
